Experiencing authentic Japanese cuisine is one of the top reasons travelers from around the globe visit Japan. Japanese cuisine is loved from all over the world, but many travelers are amazed at how different authentic Japanese food tastes compared to the Japanese- inspired food in their own countries. This is also true with tasting foreign fast food chains in Japan. Famous establishments, such as McDonald’s and Starbucks, are known for their Japanized menu options in terms of presentation, taste, and dining experience. Of course, traditional cuisine such as sushi, ramen, sukiyaki, tempura, and Japanese sweets are a “must try” while visiting. Drinks in Japan range from a variety of flavorful soft drinks, teas, canned coffee, soy drinks, to Japanese draft beer, sake (Japanese rice wine), and Japanese whiskey.
