We often say we merely travel for the food. When scoping out a new place to visit, one of the first things we look for is good food.
Tokyo was like that; we just wanted to eat everything we saw in anime. Seriously, I went to Japan with a food bucket list. We deliberately sought out taiyaki and ramen, and we really did just go to Osaka for the food (okonomiyaki followed immediately by takoyaki). We looked forward to the amazing breakfasts served at our ryokan, and we couldn’t get enough of all the little street vendors.
