The Land of the Rising Sun has always been a fascinating place to visit. Disconnected from Continental Asia, and the rest of the world, island life in such a technologically advanced nation was surely to be an interesting experience to say the least.
Tokyo, being the largest city in world, yet is spotless. Everything is extremely well maintained and serves a purpose. Since space is limited on the islands of Japan and more specifically in Tokyo, building vertically helps to fit in more, in less.
Tokyo is one of those holy grails for food lovers, but not all the great eateries can be seen just on street level, they have to be found. They have to be discovered. Some places are on random floors or rooftops or basements in random buildings, in varying areas of the city. That is why it is a never ending treasure chest.
The culture in Japan respects all trades, crafts, and art, this includes food. From the freshness of the ingredients to the extreme dedication of chefs perfecting their trade, the quality here is second to none.
One may assume our trip to Tokyo to have been filled with only eating sushi or some sort of pescatarian diet. Don’t get me wrong there was a lot of that and the best and freshest you will ever have, but there was a lot of other exceptional food too.
That brings me to experiencing one of the most delicious meat meals ever! Don’t forget Japan is also known for its beef. And if you’re tired of eating just the “plain old” sushi and want some meat, then you HAVE to eat at Ushinokura.
The meat is so fresh and you get a variety of cuts. They are all so delicious and are like butter, just every morsel melts in your mouth. The fun part is you put the meat on the grill yourself. You just can’t go wrong with it whether you like it rare or well done. All you need, if any, is a pinch of salt and the flavor is amplified. Mouth-watering meat lover heaven. Enough for a vegetarian to cheat.Have a few beers and get some frozen saki to go throughout your meal.
