An unforgettable eating experience can be the highlight of any trip. Although Japan is a famously expensive country, this guidebook will introduce you to very reasonable price foods and alcoholic beverages in unique places.Standing bars / food shops are much more reasonable than typical seating style places. The reason is that customers don’t want to keep standing and staying for long periods of time, and they often come and out, so that the shops can reap profits, and offer food / drinks at competitive prices.Usually these types of shops are compact and their rooms are cramped. So, you shouldn’t go there with a large group. The shops this guidebook covers are nice for one to three persons.The recommended shops unfortunately often do not have English speaking staff or English menu or websites. That’s why this guidebook is focused on giving you useful information.Usually, the tourists repeatedly go to the downtown area of Tokyo (東京), because it is really famous for nice sightseeing and shopping places. So, this guidebook will show you some recommended places in the downtown area. It is easy for you to get to these places by train / subway.This guidebook doesn’t cover any luxury or expensive restaurants. If you are a backpacker and traveling on a budget, it would be a good idea to read this guidebook before going to downtown Tokyo.
