Aspect | Food City

Osaka is generally considered the culinary capital of Japan, but Tokyo has had more Michelin rated three-star restaurants than Osaka ― and Paris ― for several years. It also houses a couple of hundred one- and two-star restaurants ― and tens of thousands of less celebrated eateries that cook up all kinds of dishes at all kinds of prices, from fancy *washoku* establishments serving refined traditional Japanese meals to modern izakaya restaurants with creative menus to poky grill or noodle shops that combine cheap food and drinks with a down to earth atmosphere. Even the city’s fast food options, while not the greatest quality, offer plenty of variety. The department stores, on the other hand, have their legendary food basement floors with an abundance of mouthwatering selections to go.
