Eating and food in Japan
One of the most fascinating things of Japan is definitely food. Not only the food itself (it can be more or less good), but also how they prepare and serve food is very different and fascinating.
If you're going to Tokyo, it is impossible to die of hunger. There are thousands of small restaurants scattered at each corner of the city for all budgets, you can sate yourself with 5 euros or less as you can spend hundreds of dollars. Even late at night you can find a lot of convenience stores (called conbini
) where you can always find something to eat. Moreover, there are also hundreds of McDonald's or other fast food chains (both japanese and western ones) everywhere throughout the city, open 24 hours.
If you are just thirsty, there are vending machines that really are at every corner and where you can find the most curious drinks like canned coffee or canned sweet bean soup.
