The Ultimate Food Lover’s Bucket List Slideshow

Slide 1 of 25
Tokyo, Japan

With more Michelin stars than Paris (it currently has the most in the world, actually), Tokyo has proved itself to be an ultimate gastronome destination. Wagyu beef, savory tofu dishes, sweet and salty soy-based meals, noodle soups, lean grilled meats, and, of course, exceptionally fresh seafood-turned-sushi make up the vibrant (and tradition-filled) culinary landscape of this bustling city.

Eat: Street foods are more than worth the trip, but spring for Michelin-starred sushi at Ginza Harutaka. Hit the Tsukiji Fish Market for the full experience, and dine at a 100-year-old sake brewery, Tofuya Ukai.

Sleep: Get into the Tokyo scene at Design Hotel's Park Hotel Tokyo, where cutting-edge technology meets welcoming design.
