Many Japanese burger shops modify their burgers to meet the taste of their locals so it can be quite difficult to find a true American burger in Japan. In a small town called Sasebo in Nagasaki famous for its large American navy base, you will find the closest American burger away from home. The locals refer to these American burgers as Sasebo burgers. About 20 shops in town are actually certified by the town and serve true Sasebo burgers. There's no distinctive ingredient or feature of a Sasebo burger except perhaps for its volume compared to other burgers of Japan. As with most food portions, Japanese serve much smaller sized burgers. Sasebo burgers though are comparatively larger and often include "American" toppings such as bacon, cheddar cheese, and we can't forget the double or even triple stacked meat. So if you're ever in Japan looking for a true American burger, head to Sasebo for the juicy Sasebo burgers.
