If there is one place worth checking out in Japan, it would be Tokyo. Situated right in the heart of the country, it is an important center for trade, as well as a popular tourist hub, rich in cultural and historical sites.
The city of Tokyo has much to offer any visitor who comes here. These include among others, the infamous Meiji Shrine, the Sensoji temple, the ancient Nezu and Sendagi neighborhoods, Mt. Fuji and more. Also, one can find an active anime and pop scene all throughout downtown Tokyo as well, particularly that of the Akihabara region.
The region of Tokyo is famous for a variety of cooking styles. Of them all, one of the most popular is undoubtedly the teriyaki.
It is a style of cooking, where food is broiled or grilled using a mix of soy sauce, sugar and mirin. As for the actual food being cooked, it can include a variety of different fish and a variety of meats. The meats are then served with a variety of side dishes, such as traditional sauces, garlic and onion garnishing.
There are many reasons why this style is popular, but the most important is due to the way it presents the dishes; a well-prepared teriyaki gives the dish a varnish-like coating, making it really glossy and attractive, making it look almost unreal; the shine is caused by light reflecting off the of sugar and soy sauce coating on the food. But it is very much real, and surprisingly delicious, which is why many people love it, both in Japan and abroad.
In addition to this, we would like to suggest that you also check out the many wonderful teriyaki cooking classes, and learn more about the many wonderful things that this city has to offer.
