Best 50 Restaurants in Japan According to Tabelog

The Best 50 Restaurants (all genre, mostly washoku) in Japan.

Tabelog, Japan's most popular online restaurant listing, recently released a curated list of the 50 best in Japan. You may recall that I recently wrote about their 50 best ramen, a post that can be seen here. Well, I'm almost finished with the ramen list, which means I am almost finished with ramen. I'm happy to announce that Ramen Adventures will now become Washoku-Michelin-Kaiseki Adventures, a foray into the extensive world of Japan's epicurean depths. Instead of two ramen reviews a week, I'll be writing about two high-end gastronomical destinations.

At an average of $300 a head for these places, this is going to be quite an endeavor. Luckily, my local yakuza loan shop was happy to give me enough to cover the expense.

Here they are, with photos from shops that I have visited.
