Japan is divided into distinct geographic regions, each of which has developed its own unique culinary traditions.

Japanese cuisine ranges from sushi to Tempura to Rice and Tofu. There is an amazing selection available and the flavours are superb. Furthermore, the cuisine has in recent years become much more familiar and appreciated around the world. Due to the spread, Sushi is now available even in supermarkets and lunch bars. Many visitors to Japan will have already sampled the pleasures of raw fish or batter-fried shrimp.

The traditional cuisine of Japan is based on rice with miso soup and other dishes; there is an emphasis on seasonal ingredients. Side dishes often consist of fish, pickled vegetables, and vegetables cooked in broth. Another popular part of the cuisine is Seafood. It is often grilled, but also served raw as sashimi or in sushi. Whilst sake (rice wine) is the national drink of Japan, lager-beer is the most popular drink. Due to the popularity of Japanese culture, the beers have become widely available. Shops across the world sell the main brands including Kirin, Sapporo, Suntory, and Asahi.
