Bring On Tokyo’s Tastiest Food!
Here is a look at some of the great food we’ve eaten in Tokyo – all types of great bites and beautiful plates, with delicious and unique tastes like this:
Tokyo’s Dinner And A Concert!
Alex read through Frommer’s Tokyo book and found a lot of great fun places to explore, including a restaurant that not only serves great food but puts on a show as well!
Asakusa’s Senso-ji Temple!
Our musical food adventure began in Asakusa, one of Tokyo’s most famous districts, due to the Senso-ji Temple, with an entrance that is one of the most photographed in the world!
The area around the temple is lined with great food and souvenir stalls, and of course we picked out a few fun things to bring back home:
Bento Boxes And Live Music!
Nestled among the stalls and the shrine are a number of restaurants, quick and easy food as well as sushi bars, shabbu shabbu and more – including one that Alex found that offers a bento box lunch – with live music!
Welcome To Waentei-Kikko!
Waentei-Kikko is a great restaurant just around the corner form the temple, and it is run by a husband/wife duo. Husband Fukui Kodai and another Assistant/Food Server bring you a delicious bento box first, then have a great surprise for dessert:
As you can see, the bento box you are served is packed with different flavors, like a steamed fish with a rich sauce, raw sashimi, pickled vegetables and of course rice and green tea – but the best part of the meal is when lights go on, and the Kodai and his Assistant come out on stage to perform!
The duo tune up quickly and then play some beautiful japanese folk music on unique instruments!
As you enjoy your green tea, they perform for about twenty minutes, a series of solo music and then duo performances – here is another clip of this uniquely entertaining music:
Bravo to this husband/wife team and their terrific restaurant, a “must see” when you are in Asakusa!
Now, time to head to the Ginza district of Tokyo for a “crunchy” lunch!
We also had a delicious tempura lunch at Ten-Ichi Tempura in the Sony building in Ginza…thanks to Merah Chung for pointing us here – Merah shared a lot of fun places to try – and we did!
This location only seats fifteen people around a curved bar, and we went all in for a twelve course tempura tasting that culminated in sea urchin tempura! Here are some of the dishes we had:
I know that sea urchin is an acquired taste for some, but we love it!
At the end of the meal, you are presented with a bowl of miso soup, loaded with baby clams, and I got one of my favorite food pictures of the entire trip:
We had a great lunch – in a city where every meal is memorable…like our eel bowls – served not he top floor of a department store!
Most stores have restaurants on the top floors, serving all kinds of great food – you can see more of our eel adventure here:
And of course, nothing stay “good morning” better than breakfast sushi!
We loaded up with breakfast sushi at the legendary Tsukiji fish market, and you can see more of our adventure here:
More to share from Tokyo, let me know what else you want to see!

Looks like you are having a great -food based- time over there, John! Did you manage to find the ‘Prawn backpack’ in the souvenir shops?
Best wishes, Pete.
