Eating in any Asian city is superb since there are so many people and it is super competitive for businesses. Many restaurants have signs or “plastic food” on display to attract patrons and sometimes a mall will have giant displays to let you know of the many restaurants on each floor. All the food I had in Tokyo was excellent, in particular, the Family Mart sushi was better than in the restaurants we visited!
If you have dietary restrictions, I would recommend using Google Translator to list out all the items you can’t eat ahead of time and show the service people to avoid getting killed by allergic reactions, etc.
The hotel we stayed in (Prince Park Tokyo Tower) had a lot of Western guests, so the staff spoke English. My favorite thing about the room was the toilet, it was amazing and I am sad that I could not bring it back!
Pictures below are separated into general food, breakfast, lunch, dinner and lodging. Each pic has some notes to let you know what the heck is going on…
