Really, the restaurateurs of Japan are some of the most friendly and welcoming on earth, and there are plenty of places to enjoy a relaxing traditional Japanese meal without getting dressed up to the nines.

Leisurely meals in laidback izakaya gastropubs; seafood rice bowls at local-favorite eateries; outdoor dinners on warm terraces in summer.
