Travel Japan: Yakitori Order Pro Tips

Izakaya Staple

Izakaya Staple

Japanese dining grows more and more popular every year. There are always new Ramen, Sushi, and a lot of Japanese-foods are making there way to other countries, and attract thousands of tourists each year. Of course, in a country dominated with endless ways to prepare fish, changing up the pace to chicken isn't the worst choice for anyone traveling. If you're finding yourself a bit tired of all the seafood, maybe try going to an izakaya for some yakitori?

Yakitori (which literally means grilled chicken) is a style of grilling chicken, veggies, and other meats on skewers, similar to kebabs. You can order sets or sticks on at a time when at a yakitori restaurant, though if you plan on eating a lot, we recommend getting a set if possible.
