Nagoya, Ise-Shima, and the Kii Peninsula Restaurants

Restaurants in Nagoya and on the peninsulas are slightly less expensive than in Tokyo. Your cheapest options are the noodle shops, donburi (rice bowl) chains, and kaiten (revolving) sushi and curry houses. Nagoya’s coffee shops are also known for their cheaper-than-usual morning sets, where for not much more than the price of a regular cup of coffee you will also get some toast, a sandwich, or bacon and eggs. Franchised restaurants often have English alongside Japanese on their menus, but don't expect the staff to know more than a few words.
