Travel Ideas; The rise of Japan as a popular travel destination is marked by many tourists who have discovered the country’s appeal for food, culture and scenery. A trip to Japan is not complete without a trip to one of the country’s amazing restaurants or one of the country’s famous resorts.
Japan has a rich and varied cuisine. It may seem strange to some that a country that enjoys a mild climate and strong economy should feature so many culinary delights. However, Japan has an array of dishes that each show their cultural heritage.
Sushi is a Japanese dish that combines seaweed with rice. The seaweed is both used to flavor the rice and to serve as a foil against the fish. Different types of seafood can be used to make sushi; the most common are salmon, crab, scallops and oysters. Tuna, which is commonly eaten fish in the U.S., can also be used.
If you want to have a taste of the famous fish sauce that can be found in sushi, you should try the specialty restaurants in Tokyo. The restaurant Shojin Jiro can be found in Ginza, Tokyo, a main thoroughfare in Tokyo. As you enter, you will be greeted by a sign that reads “Jiro’s All-Day Lunch.”
Know A bout Tempura
Tempura is another popular culinary phenomenon that is most popular in Shibuya, Tokyo. This Chinese-style dish is cooked on a grill over a fire of coals. Popular tempura ingredients include eggplants, squid, fresh salmon, scallops, squid, white rice and many other items that are similar to those that are used to make sushi.
At a newer and more expensive restaurant in Tokyo, Matsuhisa Maki Sushi will give you the taste of the classic maki sushi that is found at almost all restaurants in Japan. These popular dishes are served on pieces of wood. They will be topped with various dipping sauces, like ketchup, cream and even soy sauce.

Meiji Jidai Dojo is a fantastic addition to any traveler’s experience in Japan. Located in the Ginza district of Tokyo, this restaurant is unlike anything else in the city. It has an atmosphere that is fun and entertaining and the food served here is memorable and delicious.
The Signature Dish
The signature dish at the Meiji Jidai Dojo is the mochi that is best known as a type of cake that was first eaten in the Edo period. The mochi is made by combining rice, sweetened rice vinegar and water. It is typically eaten with fillings of varying sweetness and sometimes they are served in two separate bowls.
The use of mochi is unique to Meiji. Although it is similar to most other types of Japanese food, the mochi has become one of the most recognizable meals in Japan. The mochi is served with other delicious dishes such as udon with wasabi sauce and rice.
What More Interesting In Japan
Meiji cuisine is not only known for its tasty food but also for its interesting stories about Japanese history.

Of course, the ability to cook tasty food has been part of Japanese cuisine since that time. While the legacy of the Edo period is still in Japanese foods, Meiji is famous for introducing foreign and Chinese cooking techniques to Japan.

In order to understand the importance of each of these foods, one needs to watch and listen to Japanese chefs in different parts of the country while they prepare one of these foods. and then decide for yourself which type of dish you like the best.
There are various kinds of Japanese food. It would be nice to eat them all; but a trip to Japan would not be complete without sampling the unique flavors of the country’s food.
