Located throughout the nation, family restaurants, aka ‘famiresu,’ offer a variety of unique menu items at a reasonable price. Being stationed in Japan or Okinawa, you’ve likely seen places like Gusto, Saizeriya, Joyfull or Denny’s. These restaurants cover many of the popular Japanese dishes, so visiting one and scanning its thick menu will give you a good overview of the local fare.
