There is a common misconception that Japan is expensive. Most of the thousands of Restaurants in the city are geared towards the local Japanese people and serving great Japanese food in very affordable prices.

An Izakaya for example is a local neighborhood Restaurant combined with a bar. Japanese office workers unwind at an Izakaya after putting in a good 16 hours at the office. The atmosphere is cheerful and loud. The Japanese foods served at the Izakays go well with the Sake and Shochu from selected breweries in Japan.

Tokyo Restaurant Guides: Michelin

Tokyo is building a reputation as the “top gastronomic city in the world” said Bernard Delmas, President of Michelin restaurant guide.

“Tokyo remains by far the world capital of Gastronomy and also has the most three-star restaurants,” said Michelin guide director Jean-Luc Naret.

The city has succeeded Paris with more Michelin three-star restaurants, and confirmed its position as the ‘world capital of gastronomy’.

The city’s sheer size helps explain why it has so many Michelin stars. It is much bigger than Paris and has 160,000 restaurants compared with about 40,000 in Paris.

Of the places reviewed in this Michelin Guide, two-thirds serve Japanese food while the other Restaurants prepare French, Spanish, Chinese and Italian.

Michelin has been publishing the Tokyo Guide every year (Since 2009).
