Shinjuku's street scene [Photographs: Jay Friedman] If you're visiting Tokyo for business or pleasure, there's a good chance you'll be staying in the Shinjuku area. Arrive at night, and you'll feel like an alien (or perhaps a replicant?) Amidst all the neon in the Blade Runner-like atmosphere.

And while amazing Japanese food surrounds you, that alien feeling may challenge you in navigating the streets (addresses are difficult in Japan), not to mention the menus, and perhaps even the basic how-tos of ordering and etiquette. Another challenge for visitors to Japan: deciding where and what to eat in the limited time you have. Walk around, and you'll hear chefs thwacking ramen noodles and diners slurping them up, smell meat cooking on skewers over charcoal, and see colorful displays of Japanese and Western sweets in department store windows. For Ramen: Fu-unji Tsukemen at Fu-unji Shinjuku's blessed with a bounty of great ramen shops.

Fashionable shops including cafes, boutiques, general merchandise stores and interior goods shops line both sides of the 800-meter-long street, welcoming many young people on weekends.

This street was formerly called Tachibana-touri (with a different kanji), dating back to the end of the Edo Period as the furniture store street in Minamihorie; many antique shops joined the street in the Meiji Era, and during the post-war, rapid-growth period, it became nationally famous as an area for furniture. It is currently known as Orange Street (Tachibana is a type of citrus), where Japanese traditional furniture stores from before the war still remain, but is also attracting attention as a new cultural trendsetter. On the south end, it neighbors Minatomachi River Place and OCAT.

The best okonomiyaki in Osaka. Take a spin through some of Osaka's best family-run okonomiyaki savory pancake eateries. Tengu Waka making okonomiyaki savory pancakes at Tengu.Watching Waka make okonomiyaki, the much-loved Japanese savory pancake, is like observing an artist at work. Behind the tiny grill at Osaka’s Tengu, he whisks the meat-and-vegetables batter with a delicate hand, then pours it into a perfect circle. When the discs are gold but still creamy inside, he sprinkles nori and bonito flakes over the top and finishes with a flourish of sweet brown sauce.

Waka proudly points to the pin on his apron that reads “Third Generation.” Okonomiyaki originated in Osaka, and you can find the hearty stuffed pancake in every corner of the city. Waka and a server were the only people working at dinnertime, and the 18 seats were occupied by local couples and families. We asked Waka if he has kids one day, would he want them to follow in his footsteps? Tengu (run by Waka), Toyosaki 3-15-19, Nakatsu, Osaka. Kuro-Chan Mizuno.

Forget Ginza: Osaka is Japan's real class retail act. As huge and sprawling as it is, Kansai’s largest city, Osaka, rarely features in tourist plans. Sure, visitors may pencil in a quick spin round Kyoto or Nara, but the region typically lags far, far behind Tokyo in terms of international recognition. That, however, could be set to change if the city’s trade bodies and tourist organizations achieve their latest goals of promoting Osaka as the destination they reckon it deserves to be. Among the most prominent of the newly highlighted attractions is the retail therapy on offer in Osaka’s many and varied shopping districts. The sheer number of trendy retail areas are a living testimony to the fact that Osaka is a shopping paradise that is slowly but surely becoming as hip as the capital’s. Considering Osaka’s traditional shopping arcades, like Tenjinmachisuji or Shinsaibashi Suji, each boasting hundreds of stores, there has never been a shortage of great shopping in Osaka anyway.

Osaka was the first stop on my trip to Japan and I was keen to waste no time in discovering what the city had to offer food wise. Japanese has always been one of my favourite types of food and it didn’t take long before I realised that what I knew about Japanese food barely scratched the surface of the intricacies and depth of this unique cuisine.

Japanese food is very regional. While there are common dishes and ingredients across the country, each region has its own speciality dishes, ingredients and techniques – be it using chicken instead of pork, thin noodles instead of thick, mustard instead of wasabi, frying instead of steaming etc. Some of the food that I ate in Osaka simply couldn’t be found when I visited Kyoto and Tokyo.
