Infamous among locals as being the restaurants you always read about on the internet, but no locals actually go to. You’re either walking right into a place full of tourists, or just a plain old tourist trap. However, the tourist districts are easily accessible, so they’re very convenient. Take a local host along with you – their trained eye will eliminate the tourist traps and take you to the spots that are authentic, local, and delicious. Budget ~ 1500 – 2000 yen for your meals and drinks.
