How to know where to eat in Japan?

[ADS] Advertisement

Imagine that you are traveling and suddenly you get hungry. Better yet, imagine you're at home and you want to find a restaurant to eat at when you're traveling in Japan. And “even better”, imagine that you just want to browse images of super cool restaurants in Japan.

That's where Google Maps comes in. It is the best option to choose a quality Japanese restaurant with the cuisine you want, without worrying about frustrations. Take a look at the video below to better understand how this scheme works.

Using Google Maps without leaving home

If I could define the Google Maps app in one word, that word would be “practical”. As shown in the video, it is quite simple to define what you want to eat without having to leave the house.

Just first position the map on the area or city you want to visit (the more exact the place, the better) and write the word “restaurant” in the search field. But if you want, you can be more exact and write what kind of restaurant you want to eat at by writing for example “Sushi” in the search field.

You can spend hours and hours drooling over the beautiful food photos that appear while you're looking. Maybe you want to decide in advance what to eat among the thousands of japanese cuisine options.

If you feel insecure about the price, it's very practical too. When you click on the restaurant, the website of the place will appear in the middle of the options. Unfortunately most of the sites are in Japanese, so it is necessary to have a little mastery of the kanji reading.

I created a whole chapter teaching how to use Google Maps in my book that is here on the Suki Desu website, just register on the website using the form at the top of all articles. What's waiting for what to read the book doing well in Japan?

Other ways to find good restaurants

In addition to Google Maps, there is an application called tripadvisor. The good thing about using this app is that it will tell you the most famous restaurants in town. That's why the most famous options have more detailed comments that will help you get an idea of the experience that the restaurant provides.

The downside is that it is very difficult to link your tour with the options it offers. If your main objective is to go to restaurants, it will be very difficult to find a good restaurant in more isolated places, or smaller cities.

In addition, we have several articles talking about Japanese cuisine and some interesting and unique restaurants that we visit in Japan. I also guarantee that if you know how to choose, no matter where you go, you will be satisfied.

If your goal is to save money, in the most remote and isolated corners you will find a traditional yummy soba for less than 300 yen. Or rather, you won't be hungry with the infinite options of snacks in a convenience store, konbini.
