What foods should I try in Tokyo?

Yuta Takahashi Yuta Takahashi, Living in Japan

I would like to recommend to eat Takenoko no sato.  It is one of famous snacks in Japan, it is made of chocolate and cookies. It cost about 200yen.  If you eat it, you will get sweet and lovely taste.  It is amazing.  There is also different version, it calls, Kinokonoyama. It's also great.

"Oniyanma", that is a favorite of mine. Shinbashi has also affiliated stores. This shop is based on Jr. Outside the ticket, went into the shop, please pass the ticket clerk. "Toriten get Tempura udon" is recommended. This is a really tasty udon. Give it a try.
