Metro Manila · Little Tokyo
The Little Tokyo Complex offers everything Japan-lovers and Japanese Megacitizens need: restaurants serving ramen, okonomi-yaki and liters of tea and high-quality sake, a grocery, a karaoke bar, a spa, and the soothing atmosphere of a Japanese Zen garden.
By passing the shrinelike wooden gate and entering the secluded patio of Little Tokyo, you can leave the hustle and bustle of Metro Manila behind for a while and dine in an environment that reminds the visitor of a traditional Japanese temple complex: paper lanterns, dark wood, roofs resembling a pagoda, and in the center a little garden with boxwood, gravel and stone sculptures.
Why Megacititzens Should Pay This Location A Visit
Little Tokyo is popular among Japanese businessmen, locals and expats alike, as the about a dozen locations in the compound have Japanese owners and together serve the whole range of authentic Japanese cuisine.
Every fourth Sunday afternoon of the month, the restaurants celebrate the Little Tokyo Sunday Fiesta, with food stalls, a bazaar, karaoke contests, and more.
