One of Japan's biggest draws is its fantastic cuisine. Wherever you go in the country, you are never too far from good food. From street-side stalls to some of the world's best fine dining restaurants, wholesome, delicious food is accessible and available to all. In Tokyo, start with a visit to the Tsukiji fish market and eat as much sushi as you can, before moving onto the city's old town to eat another local favourite, the tempura. Away from the bustle of Tokyo, explore the laid-back atmospheric town of Takayama, and savour Hida beef, the town's speciality offering.
If you haven't had your fill of Japanese food, head to Osaka, a city known for its food. The trouble here might not be where to find good food, but rather choosing from the many options you have. Try everything on offer, from eating in an izakaya to one of the city's well-known restaurants.
