Your "must try" Japanese food experiences.

Jump to last reply

My boyfriend and I are big on trying new foods, and are always willing to test out palates and have interesting food experiences. For eg: one of my highlights from our recent trip to Singapore was to go to Nox restaurant. Where you dine in complete darkness and have no idea what you are eating.

Anyway..

We go to Japan in July and want to get the most out of our holiday. We will spending 4 nights in Tokyo, 1 night in Hakone, 2 nights in Kyoto, 1 night in Koyasan and 4 nights in Osaka.

We have already booked into the Tapas Molecular Bar in Tokyo, for some Molecular Gastronomy.
Our ryokan/shukubo in Hakone and Koyasan will include a kaseiki/Shojin ryori meal. And our hotel in Osaka is right near Dōtonbori. I've read about places that sell bear, horse, whale and even salamander. Does anyone recommend specific restaurants that have these on the menu?

I'm also interested in suggestions about themed restaurants, "hole in the wall" eateries, or anything different that we don't have here in Sydney. I'm open to all suggestions, no matter how weird and wonderful. Or even recommendations for the best local favourites. I love okonomiyaki, so if anyone has a favourite place to get that, I'm super keen.

Thanks! :)
