As this year's international arrival statistics—which have already passed those from last year—show, Japan is attracting more people with more varieties of destinations and experiences, and it proves Japan tourism's transition to greater worldwide appeal.

Ramen has recently enjoyed a surge of international popularity and is a must eat for many visitors to Japan. Tsuta is an unassuming ramen eatery in Tokyo's Toshima Ward, unlike many other Michelin starred restaurants Tsuta is very affordable with a standard bowl of ramen only costing about $8!
