“Hakata” is a food district that is known as a battlefield for restaurants. That very place is to be the location of the large-scale food event “Super Curry Grand Prix”! Talented “spice masters” from across Japan will gather in Hakata! Also, running at the same time will be the “Gekikara Beer Garden,” another must-see event!
In addition to Japanese style like sushi or tempura, Tokyo has all types of eating establishments including restaurants selling ramen and yakiniku, cuisine from around the world, and izakayas where you can leisurely enjoy alcoholic beverages and food.
“Ginza Budonoki” is an authentic assiette à dessert specialty shop. Here you can partake in freshly made, artistically designed desserts. They also offer a variety of “seasonal desserts,” made with in-season fruits. Let’s move on to the shop’s introduction.
“Maizuru Port Toretore Center” is the michi-no-eki, or road station, with the largest seafood market near the Sea of Japan. You can have the fish at the various stalls either cooked or prepared into sashimi for you, letting you dig in to the fresh fish right then and there!
One thing that brings to mind the upcoming "Golden Week" (from the end of April through the first week of May) is Niku-Fes, a major food entertainment event.

“Es Presso Coffee GREEN” is located in a residential area about a 10-minute walk from JR Hanwa Line’s “Shinodayama Station” in Osaka Prefecture’s Izumiotsu City. It may look like an old coffee shop, but in actuality it’s a café with great deals on its items, so I decided to stop by right away!
“Ginza Bairin” is a famous tonkatsu restaurant that was founded in 1927. One of the reasons for its popularity is that its founder, a former pharmacist, developed the original chuno sauce (the sauce used on pork katsu).
I’ve been a big fan of this restaurant for many years now. This time, I’ll be introducing my recommended dishes that I enjoyed on this particular visit.
