With 'What's What in Japanese Restaurants' in your pocket this will never happen to you. Robb Satterwhite has written an indispensable book for anyone travelling to Japan for the 1st or even the 30th time. The book is divided into sections detailing regional styles, types of food, etc., and each section gives the Japanese characters that you will find on the menu, a transliteration into Roman characters and an explanation of the dish. He talks about diferent types of eating places, from standup noodle stalls to the VERY exclusive Japanese traditional restaurant. Included also are useful phrases for dining and there's even a section on drinking. He touches on etiquette and finishes with a glossary of terms. This is the most comprehensive book on eating in Japan that I have come across in more than 20 years of travelling to and fro. An absolute must buy.
It is conveniently (nearly) pocket sized for carrying around, especially if you are not glued to the internet for information.
The book is very informative, giving etiquette advice too - very essential if you do not want to be the classic clunky foreigner.
The lists of entires under the various styles of cooking are in Romaji (abc version of Japanese word) , then Japanese, then English - in an easy to read typeface.
Would recommend this small book if going to Japan either for a holiday or for work.
