Upon going to Fukuoka two years ago, I was put off eating pizza in Japan (mostly because of the garlic filled pizza in Canal City). In Tokyo though, there seems to be some hope. I’ve managed to go to some places with either Japanese style Italian or American style pizza that I could recommend you might want to go to. Although there is probably so much more you should know about, hopefully this list will be a starting point.
CoCo壱番屋 is one of the places I always tell people to go eat at. Although it’s like fast food in Japan, CoCo’s curry has a better taste than most curry places I’ve been to. I’ve tried combining toppings to see what tastes best with what will taste nice. Unfortunately tandoori chicken will only be available until end of May as the menu changes every three months with the seasons. I’ll try and recommend you something from the summer menu when it comes out. The ones with * are what CoCo recommends for first timers not sure what to get. All pictures are on my food photography page.
A range of temples, castles and shrines are free to visit all over Japan – at least the ones I visited are. Some of the most famous ones are on this list but at least you’ll get an idea of where you should go to while visiting these regions.
Around 80% of Japanese people hold the poise of elegance, cleanliness and perfection whenever I see them. Some of the things that they do here makes me wonder if people in the U.K would try to do more if the culture was similar or if people had the mentality to have a more presentable appearance or personality. It seems like the more I watch the Japanese and the way they live, the more I learn about them.
