Are you a coffee fanatic with the inside scoop about where to get the best beans in Tokyo? Maybe you’re on a mission to document all the vegan options at popular Japanese chain restaurants. Or you could be a tea ceremony hobbyist with an extensive collection of Japanese pottery and table manners to wow even the most prim and proper tea ceremony instructor. If you have a story to tell within the niche of Japanese gastronomy, we want to hear from you!

ByFood aims to publish informative and well-researched articles, written in a friendly, approachable, and engaging voice. We produce helpful content about Japanese food culture, cover the latest in Japanese food news and trends, and provide Where to Eat guides across the nation. We also welcome human-centered food stories and restaurant reviews, as well as personal essays about living and eating in Japan.

If you love writing (and eating!), shoot us an email at with your resume, 2-3 writing samples, and some ideas about the topics you want to cover. We’re looking forward to hearing from you!
