About Tokyo

Tokyo is a city of superlatives. The world’s largest metropolitan area bursts at the seams. Everywhere you look there is something new and exciting. Bright lights and glamour, fashion and art, Tokyo is relentlessly modern. Yet walk a few blocks and you’re awash in its history. Temples, shrines, and glorious parks abound. There is literally something for everyone in Japan’s capital. In springtime the cherry blossoms fill Ueno Park. Summer’s long nights are perfect for strolling the famous shops and restaurants in Shinjuku. Fall’s excitement is palpable as temperatures break and the city’s nightlife is in full swing. In winter, Tokyo’s hot springs are a true delight and nearby Mount Fuji is absolutely stunning. Whether you’re a Japanophile or just someone who appreciates the simple things in life, you can find what you’re looking for in Tokyo.

 11 Top Eel Rice Restaurants in Tokyo 2020
Tokyo
Gourmet Food
Michelin-Rated
Seafood
Eel on a bed of rice is an icon in Japanese cuisine for many food connoisseurs. Eel on rice tastes great when 1. the eel is fatty enough and drizzled with a caramelized sauce; and 2. the rice is prepared in a particular way. The fish only tastes fantastic when it is laid on an amazing bed of rice. Tokyo’s eel cuisine hails from a century of gastronomy.
