When people who are traveling for the first time in Japan ask me for food recommendations I always tell them to explore and try anything they find. It is very difficult to find a bad place in Japan, on average, restaurants will prepare you amazing food.
I was with two friends and we just entered the nearest yakitori place. We ordered and the yakitori in general was just ok, but the shiitake that you can see in the picture being prepared by the woman was the best one I have ever tried! The texture and the flavor was just perfect. My friends agreed and we ended up having tons of shiitake for dinner
Food recommendations in Japan: explore and try many things, even after ten years I’m still discovering new places and dishes!
