Budget "Washoku" for Japanese Foodie Fun
You are on a Budget, all your Senpai definitely understand! Those of us who call Japan home, can give you some inside tips on how to enjoy the inexpensive yumminess of this great land!
Tokyo, Shibuya, Kyoto, Osaka..Everywhere in Japan! Kaiten sushi is cheap and reasonable!
100-yen Kaiten sushi place's Major chain stores -popular ”Kappa zushi" and "Sushiro". Low prices are the selling point of these stores, but they taste very good too. Personally Sushiro is my favorite. Their IT ordering system (tablet with user-friendly menu with real pictures) is fun and quick! They also have new menu every month in order not to let customers get tired. We have more new stores of those kinds every year.
All You Can Drink in Japan!
When having a party at any izakaya (Japanese pub), a common option to choose is the nomihoudai (all you can drink) option. I never thought this was unique to Japan until my foreigner friends told me they had never had an all you can drink option. If you choose to do nomihoudai, you will be able to drink as much alcohol and soft drinks as you want for as low as 1000 yen for two hours. The price depends on the place you go. Sometimes options will have a 3 hour limit or even all night.
Curry Rice in Japan : Extra Topping Matters.
Curry rice （カレーライス） originates in India but it has been loved for decades in Japan as well. Traditional curry rice among Japanese consists of steamed rice with viscous curry sauce covering boiled beef, pork or chicken and can be enjoyed at curry restaurants, ramen restaurants, beef bowl restaurants, and is actually also available at convinience stores.
Udon is a Must-Try for a Real Japanese Noodle Experience
When you place your order at soba restaurants, you'll find only a series of toppings on the menu served with (or on top of) the noodles. Sometimes, though, the choice of soba or udon does not appear on the menu (most likely because Japanese clientele know that their choice is available as a matter of course).
Ramen with Chashu Topping
Ramen are very popular in Japan. There are magazines and books about ramen and TV shows where people do nothing but walk around from shop to shop eating.
