ASIA'S 50 BEST RESTAURANTS LOGO

Gastronomic Experiences
Since food is a very serious business in Japan, it’s no surprise that Japanese food is one of the most popular cuisines in the world. Time-tested preparation techniques, combined with great attention paid to the provenance of ingredients, is what lies at the heart of Japanese cooking, and even the utensils used are just as highly valued as the chefs preparing the mouthwatering food. This attention to detail means that you will dine like royalty throughout your stay, whether you’re eating in a fine dining restaurant or sampling a hot broth at a neighbourhood noodle bar.

Eating out in Japan can feel like a private performance that invigorates all your senses. From the displays of fresh seafood in tanks to the dramatic open kitchens with flaming grills and the ceremony of ancient food preparation techniques, the drama of Japanese dining will leave you with a satisfied palate and unforgettable memories.

Flavour balance, skill and a desire for perfection set Japanese cuisine apart. It’s no wonder it has been distinguished with a UNESCO cultural heritage award. When eating in Japan, expect to be served the best seafood in the world, beef that melts in the mouth like butter, and the most well-presented and best-tasting sashimi on the planet.

With Tokyo, Osaka, and Kyoto featuring prominently in international coverage of fine dining, there’s no shortage of outstanding eating options. And it’s not just Japanese cuisine on offer, since the commitment to excellence extends into a very wide offering of cuisines from around the world. To elevate your Japanese taste experience why not enlist the expertise of a private chef who can take you on a personal food tour of Japan, intimately discuss the creations with you and reveal all the nuances in the tastes of Japanese cuisine?

World-Class Dining
It will come as perhaps no surprise that Japan has so many award-winning restaurants, given its reputation for fine cuisine. There are endless opportunities to dine in exceptional establishments, whether you wish to try something on the experimental side or keep things uber-traditional.

Japanese Cuisine
Deeply influenced by the seasons and shaped by the region in which it is served, an exploration of Japanese cuisine could last a lifetime, with enough variety to cater for even the most demanding of palates. Whether you seek a sake-paired tasting menu or an opulent private dining affair, the food of Japan will not disappoint.

About Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants

Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants was launched in 2013 to celebrate gastronomy across the region and to provide diners around the globe with local insight and culinary recommendations. 

The ninth edition of the list was announced on Thursday, 25th March 2021 via a virtual awards ceremony. Given the pandemic’s devastating impact on the region’s restaurant scene, 50 Best’s role in helping to boost the recovery of the sector is more important than ever. The publication of this year’s list – along with the 51-100 list and the unranked Essence of Asia collection – is part of an overall drive to support the region’s restaurant scene by recognising and promoting as many great restaurants as possible across Asia.

The Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants list is created by the Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants Academy, an influential group of over 300 leaders in the restaurant industry across Asia, each selected for their expert opinion of Asia’s restaurant scene. Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants takes in six voting regions: India & Subcontinent; South-East Asia – South; South-East Asia – North; Hong Kong, Taiwan & Macau; mainland China & Korea; Japan.
