Like many places these days, Japan has a thriving culture of street food. Throughout Japan, people line up at the tables, trucks, and stands of vendors for a variety of sweet and savory food options. Some popular street foods might be recognizable from your favorite Japanese restaurant. For instance, yakitori—chicken skewers—aren’t unusual to find in a Japanese restaurant, but the ones served on the streets of Japan may also contain chicken livers and skin. Ramen, or noodle soup with a variety of toppings, may also be familiar and is extremely popular in Japan. Other street foods, like takoyaki, or fried octopus, might be more surprising.
