Look Out For The Delicious and Inexpensive Set Lunch Options in Japan

A lot of excellent restaurants in Japan offer very affordable set lunches so look out for these when you want an exquisite and filling meal but you don’t want to pay the high prices often associated with haute cuisine served in Japan. You could easily pay above ¥10,000 per person in the evening for dinner at the many high-class restaurants scattered throughout Tokyo, but many restaurants with extremely good reputations also offer set lunches at a fraction of that cost at midday. For example, a traditional Japanese restaurant called Sankame (pictured below), which serves Kyoto style dishes in Tokyo and boasts a Michelin Guide one star, charges ¥10,000 – ¥15,000 for dinner but only ¥1,000 to ¥2,000 for a set lunch between 12 and 2 p.m. and it’s located in Ginza – an area renowned for its pricey real estate.
