Let’s Visit TCK This Summer for the Hot “Tokyo Meat Competition”! Enjoy Horse Races and Gourmet Foods During Summer Nights!Read Later
During summer of 2018, TCK will be hosting the “Tokyo Meat Competition,” where select famous meat restaurants will be competing. This is a rare chance to enjoy the food from many famous restaurants all in one go during your trip to Japan. This time, we will be introducing the highlights of TCK as well as the details on the “Tokyo Meat Competition.”
When in Osaka, I want to eat the most delicious yakitori, or grilled chicken served on skewers! If that sounds like you, I can highly recommend Morita. At this restaurant, savor the freshest free-range local chicken that has been deftly handled with the utmost care by the owner, who has the rare distinction of having a license to handle fowl as food.
“Houchou Ippon” is a tucked-away Japanese restaurant in Kitahama, a business district of Osaka.
They offer authentic Japanese foods made with seasonal ingredients, so it’s often used for business meals and the like.
I heard that you can get a great lunch for a reasonable price here, so I went in for a visit.
“Kashiya” is a popular ramen restaurant in Osaka.
While it’s a small shop with a mere 8 counter seats, it’s such a popular restaurant that it’s even been featured on TV.
Hibiya is a neighborhood in Tokyo known for its cinemas and theaters. In March of 2018, Tokyo Midtown Hibiya opened and I visited a Shanghaiese restaurant called Raika in this building. There are also Raika branches in Tokyo's Shinjuku Gyoen and Aoyama. All three locations are so popular that it's hard to get in without a reservation.
Today we'd like to introduce you to Bean's Cafe, a waffle & pancake house located in Fukuoka's popular Nishijin area.

Tokyo, GINZA SIX – Enjoy Cha Soba and Matcha Parfaits at “Nakamura Tokichi Honten,” a Long-Standing Tea Shop!Read Later
Nakamura Tokichi Honten is a Japanese tea specialty shop that was founded in 1819.
With stores in Kyoto Station, Uji City, and Hong Kong, it is an extremely popular shop that is both a tea store and a café, and it isn’t unusual to have to wait over an hour even on weekdays!
Another location opened in “GINZA SIX,” a commercial building in Ginza, in April of 2017, and the lines there every day are a testament to its popularity!
