Cast your line into the fun at Zauo Shinjuku(ざうお 新宿店), a seafood haunt with a quirky difference. Don't de-bait about it--just take your friends and see for yourself!
Japan is known for having the world’s freshest seafood, where customers are treated to sushi and sashimi that have been caught off the country’s coast that very morning; some are even lucky enough to dine on fish pulled directly from the sushi shop’s fish tank and prepared on demand. But at Zauo (literally, “The Fish”), a Kanto restaurant chain as unconventional as it is delicious, the word “fresh” doesn’t begin to describe the experience! Why bother fishing for words here, when the pictures speak for themselves?
Zauo has locations through Japan including the Kyushu, Kansai and Tokai regions, but the idea was born in Kanto. Stepping into Zauo Shinjuku, your eyes will be immediately drawn to the sight of a boat docked in the center of the restaurant. Zauo bills itself as a “fishing restaurant,” a phrase that means exactly what you might imagine: You can enjoy actually catching your meal from the fishing pool and having it cooked for you then and there. While attention to thematic detail and uber-fresh seafood are highlights, the real charm of Zauo begins with the experience of fishing for your grub! Of course, there are a few steps you need to follow before casting out your line.
Catching a Bite to Eat at Zauo Shinjuku
Just to make sure that nothing fishy happens, Zauo’s helpful waitstaff will first explain each step of your adventure after you’re seated. As they have an English menu and guidelines, there is no need to worry about getting tangled up in the intricacies of Japanese language. Since Zauo Shinjuku is located inside a hotel, the clientele has a high percentage of foreign tourists, particularly Americans and Europeans. So how do you catch a bite to eat at Zauo?
Step 1: Pick Out Your Rod and Bait
After hearing an explanation from the waitstaff, the first thing you need to do is get your supplies and buy bait for the fish. Bait can be purchased cheaply, costing ¥100–200. Rods are sturdy and simple without reels, perfect for novices and “a-fish-ionados” alike. Best of all, they are free of charge!
Step 2: Choose Your Fish
Once you’re ready, tell the staff which fish you want to catch. Each type is separated into smaller tanks and the price is properly written out so there should be no trouble deciding which one to catch.
Step 3: Start Fishing
Once you choose a fish, it’s then released into the larger tank for your fishing—and hopefully, eating—pleasure! Most people who try their hand at fishing have limited experience, but there’s no need to be a pro-fisherman here. You are likely to catch your fish without a problem, so it’s time to let your line out and see what bites.
Step 4: Make Your Big Catch
Cast, wait, jerk and catch! As you can see, it’s a lot of fun. If you come to Zauo as a group, make sure to get everybody involved in scooping up the fish with the net and pulling it in. It’s a great way to enjoy a bit of teamwork and get the mood going before your fresh fish feast.
If you’re trying to catch one fish and end up catching another, talk with the waitstaff who will be happy to help you catch the one that got away. And in the event that you can’t seem to catch anything, ask the staff for some fishing know-how. No matter your level of fishing prowess, your experience is sure to end with a catch—and with it, a great meal.
Step 5: Time to Eat
After catching your fish, hand over your net to the waitstaff, who will make sure that the fish is quickly prepared according to your preferences. Even if there is only one fish between two people with very different tastes, you can rest easy; the staff is more than happy to prepare each half in a different way! In other words, picky eaters and culinary adventurers alike can all enjoy themselves no matter who’s in the group.
Three Great Ways to Enjoy Fish at Zauo Shinjuku
Don’t Like to Fish? Order Straight Off the Menu
Of course, it’s possible to bypass the fishing altogether and order food without casting a line—this sazai shellfish, for example, comes straight off the menu, as do all the fish available at Zauo. However, if you catch your meal yourself, you can get a slight discount: the ¥3,360 sea bream will cost only ¥2,499 if you do the leg work, and a ¥3,990 flounder will cost ¥3,129. Saving money is wonderful, but the experience is about more than prices: Not only will fishing in the heart of Tokyo give you a lifelong memory, but it’s also simply too much fun to pass up! Everyone should plan to drop a line and see what it’s all about.
A Tokyo Restaurant with a Truly Unique “Al-Lure”
At Shinjuku’s fishing restaurant “Zauo,” you can enjoy reeling in a fresh catch and then have it prepared as you like it. Just like the restaurant’s slogan “Catch the fun!” says, visitors come for the joy of fishing and stay for the amazing food. Zauo is wonderful for dates, ideal for big groups or family outings, and even great for a single patron looking for a new Tokyo experience. Zauo Shinjuku will ensure a fun-filled event from your first cast to your last bite.

Japanese Pub Restaurant, Izakaya
At this time I`m going to give short introduction about one of Japanese traditional restaurant. That restaurant is called izakaya in Japanese. There are a lot of izakaya restaurant in Japan. There always a lot of people in izakaya, especially on the weekend period. Plenty of Japanese salary man always go to izakaya after they finished their work at the weekend period for drinking with the coworkers and friends. Among the izakaya is Chiba chan which is very famous in Chiba prefecture. I`ve been there for some times.
I have some recommendation menus in Chiba chan. Those are the Karage and the Yaki soba. The food there is cheap, delicious and in a BIG portion. They serve all of the menus in three portion the normal size, big size (Baka) and mega big(Oobaka). I do recommend to order the mega big size for any menu. People always come there in a group of two people until 10 people. They always enjoying drinking, eating while chatting with their friends.
If you have never gone to izakaya, I strongly recommend to go there. They have a kind of Japanese atmosphere, which you won`t find in any other country else. Another recommended menu is the horse meat, the horse meat here is very soft and taste is good. This all about the short introduction of Izakaya, the other introduction of Japanese restaurant or food going to come soon.

Japan Ramen (Noodles) Store
I would like to recommend Ichiran, the ramen restautant. As far as I am aware, there is one of these restaurants in the Shibuya and Chiba districts of Japan. The restaurant specializes in rame and a staff memeber hands you two forms upon sitting down, the first of which asks the customer how they would like their ramen made. The options are quite intricate, such as the flavor strengh, richness (fat content), thickness of the noodles, thick green onions slices or thin green onion slices, and they even have a "special" sauce that you choose to add to your ramen. I warn, however, that this sauce is very spicy and if you choose to add the full amount, your ramen's broth will surely turn red. No matter which toppings you choose, the price for your ramen remains the same at approximaterly 750yen.
One things to keep in mind, however, is this restaurant is not mean to be visited with a large group of friends looking to socialize while anjoying their meals. The restaurant includes booths instead of tables. Therefore, you cannot see ther person next to you very well. The lights of are also very dim so you are not meant to enjoy scenery, except that of your ramen, Upon sitting down, the booth contains a water fountain for refills, a few menus and advertisements along the walls, and a button at the center top section. This is meant for when you wish to use the second form I mentioned at the beginning. The form includes any additional toppings or sides you wish to order with your ramen, such as a boilded egg, a bowil of white rice, more slices of pork, etc. Kae-dama is also one of these options and only costs 180yen.

SIU ZAMORA BRENDA / Spain
Japanese restaurant Chain of Sushi
When somebody thinks about Japan one of the first things that come to mind may be Sushi because it is one of then Japanese gastronomy dishes that has become more popular outside Japan. But actually very few foreign people really know what exactly it is and how it has to be eaten. Sushi consists in vinegared rice combined with other ingredients. Althought it is also important to sya that ther are different kinds of sushi. Japanese people normally understand as sushi the makizushi and the nigirizushi, bt sometimes it is also extensive to the sashimi. Another appreciation I want to add is that some people does not know that the sushi does not have to be soaked with my soy sauce. The right way to eat it is just moistening a liitle bit.
This is the case of the chain of restaurants called Sushiro. It is placed in different points of Japan and they offer different kinds of sushi for one hundred yens each serving. The restaurants are provided with a chain where the sushi goes around in circles until it is taken by the person that ordered it. Also, each table have a touch screen where you can choose the type of sushi you want to order and the screen calls you when your order is near you, so you can take it. Another good point of this restaurant is that the menu is available in English, so it is easier for the foreign people to understand. Also it is important to remark that you can choose if you want to eat the sushi with wasabi or without it, which is very advantageous for those who are not used to eating wasabi. In other restautants the wassabi is already incorporated. At the end, pay for the quantily of plates you have on the table, so you can calulate more or less how much you want tp pay out.
For all the reasons I exposed before I think that the Sushiro restaurant is a good option for those people that want to taste a good sushi but don't want to a expend a lot of money on it. So I invite people to visit any of the Sushiro restaurants and to enjoy eating Sushi.
