Living, working, and even traveling in Japan can be very busy. You will find that in order to keep up with the pace of life there, you will turn to fast food in Japan every day. But the truth is that any restaurant food in Japan, even if you call it a sit-down restaurant, is fast. I don't think my food in Japan is waiting for more than 10-15 minutes. Japanese fast food is a little different (although there are many) of your synthetic McDonald's burgers. There are plenty of places to relax and be welcoming, and you can get great food at an incredible price and incredibly fast.
Japan's most notorious fast food restaurant (now also in the US) is the beef bowl – "Gyudon" – restaurant. These include 24-hour chain stores such as Yoshinoya, Matsuya and Sukiya. Yoshinoya is the largest beef chain restaurant in Japan. The first was opened in 1899 at the fish market in Tokyo. These chain stores are highly competitive for customers, resulting in a price war that has reduced the cost of beef bowls to around $3. Although the beef bowl is mainly prepared by Americans. Beef, the import ban from 2004 to 2006 led to a slowdown in production, while Australian beef or Japanese beef was used instead. Today beef bowl lovers can enjoy the original taste again. The beef bowl chain is more enjoyable than the beef rice; you can choose from a variety of beef bowls prepared with different sauces and toppings, or you can choose something completely different from curry rice. Use the ticket vending machine at the entrance and everything is prepaid.
With the influence of Western culture on Japan, Hamburg began to dominate the country's fast food industry. However, McDonald's does not have a monopoly on the burger and fries market because chain stores like "Mos Burger" are very popular. Whether it's McDonald's or a Japanese chain, the original American cuisine has a unique Japanese flavor. Moss’s chicken braised burger is just for death.
"First Kitchen" is another fast food restaurant in Japan. You can find not only burgers, but also soups, pizzas, pasta, floats and ice cream. This chain offers eight different flavors of French fries!
If you travel by train in Japan, you may encounter "buckwheat noodles" or almost every station has soba noodles. These places offer simple noodle soups and a variety of toppings. Ordering and payment usually have vending machines at the entrance. Although the ramen noodle restaurant is not always located near the train station, it is equally fast and delicious.
Noodles, burgers and beef bowls have always been considered fast food, but recently the Japanese fast food boom was "octopus burning", which is a round-roasted octopus dumpling. The food itself is nothing new because it is often consumed on festivals and other occasions, but many octopus stores have begun to emerge throughout the country, one of which is the “Gindaco” chain.
When all other methods fail, there will always be an upcoming 24/7 convenience store.
