Hi, I’m Fumi.
What makes you happy and excited, while you travel to countries? I think that eating local food is the one of the exciting things.
Japan has many delicious Japanese foods, so you’ll enjoy eating them while you are in Japan. Especially, you can find many Japanese food restaurants everywhere in Tokyo.
Also, you can get them easily at convenience stores, vending machines, stores and street food stands. I introduce the famous Japanese restaurant and bar spot in Shinjuku, Tokyo. It is called “Omoide yokocho”.
Over 50 Japanese style bars and Japanese food restaurants are gathered there. If you go there, you are not tired to find Japanese food restaurants while you walk around many tall buildings in Shinjuku. It is the one of busiest place in Tokyo, because many tourists go there.
Recommend Japanese Food Restaurant at Shinjuku in Tokyo, Japan
This famous Japanese bars and restaurants spot are called ” Omoide yokocho” and many tourists go and enjoy eating Japanese local foods at night. Most restaurants and bars open around 3 or 4 o’clock pm.
I recommend Japanese style skewered chicken, pork and vegetables. Why don’t you eat them while you stay in Tokyo, Japan? Especially, you can recreate yakitori (Japanese style skewered chicken, pork and vegetables) at home.
But It’s the best to eat original Japanese style skewered chicken in Japan, of course! You recognize the difference taste between Japanese foods in Japan and ones in your country.

In this summer, I took 2 Belgian couple there and had yakitori (Japanese style skewered) at 伸. These Belgian are chef who cook Japanese food at their bar. They enjoyed having original Japanese food yakitori.
This bar has menu that are written in English too, so you can understand the ingredients. I had orange juice and tomato with pork. It was juicy and mild. I want to tell you one thing.
You have to be careful, you may drop liquid from tomatoes or oil on your clothes at the moment you bite. Actually, oil dropped on my favorite white trousers. Belgian had several chickens. We also enjoyed a small automatic appetizer that comes with our first drink.
