Food in japan is delicious. Food and people are the greatest appeal of the country. But not everything in Japan is sushi and tenpura.
One of the main meals of the country are the noodles. The noodle restaurants abound in Tokyo. They are cooked in many different ways, with or without broth with vegetables, meat, fish, egg ... Also the prices are usually very affordable. Strongly recommended.
