You may have heard Momofuku’s David Chang wax poetic about convenience store fried chicken in Japan and I’d have to wholeheartedly agree.  If you haven’t tried fried chicken at a convenience store in Japan, you’re seriously missing out.  In this post, I’ll not only list my favorites, but I’ll have some info about when to go, along with some tips on selecting a good branch.

In early 2018, the food documentary Ramen Heads (ラーメンヘッズ) was released in Japan and the US. Being the over-prepared travel planner that I am, I decided to map out all of the locations from the documentary so I could potentially hit up a couple of these locations the next time I’m jonesing for some good ramen in the Tokyo Area.  Listed below are the names and addresses of the places shown in the movie, with a google map at the end so you can easily find your way to these places as well.

In March 2017, a food-centric show from Japan called Samurai Gourmet (Nobushi no Gurume 野武士のグルメ) appeared on Netflix in the US. It’s an easy-going show full of heart that I would recommend for anyone interested in Japanese food, but I was noticing as I was watching that they were filming at real places, not sets. So listed below are the names and addresses of the places eaten in Samurai Gourmet Season 1, with a google map at the end so you can easily find your way to these places as well.
