Beef Curry @ Gyorantei


Having had lots of Japanese curry, it’s no surprise that the best one I’ve ever had is in its spiritual hometown. The restaurant has downsized from its former glory days, but at least they’re still cooking. It’s about an hour by train from Tokyo, though it’s well worth it.

Second favorite would have to be the mango curry from the now-closed Mr. Curry. Had their curry pilaf long time ago.

Kitsune Soba @ Kanda Matsuya

Not the most comfortable dining atmosphere, but the soba (and yakitori) is well worth it. They’re near Akihabara.

Oura Church

Believed as the oldest church in Japan, it honours the 26 martyrs who were crucified at the start of the persecution of Christians in the country.
