    Oh wow I wish we had your guide before we went! Somehow we seemed to have missed loads of these dishes, probably because we were living on amazing sushi and ramens. We saw many things like that Okonomiyaki in packets, but didn’t buy anything … however we did LOVE Bento boxes at the train stations, we loved trying to find the most elaborate ones… great post! will pin for if we can ever afford to go back!

      Yeah I saw all the beautiful ekiben at train stations! Amazing aren’t they? I miss Japanese food so much – writing this post took ages because I just kept thinking about it!

      It’s so easy to live on just a few things there because it all tastes so good! I probably didn’t even try half of what I wanted – there is always next time! YES – the ekiben! I did have it once on the train from Kyoto to Tokyo – wish I got it more often though to try all the different varieties!

    I love most Japanese food (at least what I can get in the States), but there are some things on this list I’ve never heard of that look incredible! It makes me excited for the day we can visit and eat our hearts out; if we do make it over there, we’ll definitely use this guide. Yum!

      You guys definitely should go! You’ll find plenty of good hiking outside the cities and the food speaks for itself!

    Everything looks so yummy – now I want to visit Japan and eat all the goodies. Eating local food while travelling is my favourite thing to do.

    I used to work in chain restaurant in the UK that liked to think it’s Japanese. The real thing looks sooooo much better. Want to eat all of this! 😀

      I am yet to find a good sushi place in London other than one less-visited chain which does some great take-away rolls. Nothing compares to the real thing though!

    I pretty much live for ramen and just got so hungry reading that. Also the gyozas – I know gyoza isn’t a rare find but those gyozas in your photo look so good. Japan would definitely be a food paradise for me 😀

      The ramen I had in Tokyo was just incredible. I can’t praise that place enough!

    Since I don’t eat seafood, I’ve always wondered if there would be food in Japan that I could eat. You answered this question! There are so many yummy options to choose from! I must go make dinner now – I’m drooling over all of this goodness!!

    Oh my gosh…I don’t think I can go to Japan. I would never stop eating! I’d be worried about fitting on the airplane to get home. 😉 Everything looks SO good. Aaaand now I have a craving for Ramen. Mmmm.

      Just do what I do and walk everywhere! Great way of seeing the country and also a perfect excuse for eating loads – gotta get those energy-replenishing carbs in! Now you mention it, I am craving ramen too!

      Thanks Lisa – I did a lot of walking in Japan so that was my way of justifying eating so much over there!

      She will have an amazing time and so will you when you eventually go! There is plenty to eat in Japan other than fish, so you will be absolutely fine!

    So interesting to see that there is so much more to Japanese cuisine than sushi and Kobe beef. It all looks so delicious, I can’t even pick a favourite..!
