Tokyo IS good food. In my opinion the food in Tokyo is the best part of Tokyo! You can get pretty much anything in Tokyo, at any time, and Christmas Dinner is no exception. Whether you are searching for traditional holiday fare, or something a bit more trendy, there are hundreds, if not thousands of options to choose from in Tokyo. Here we have put together a list of more traditional “turkey and potato” options for holiday dining in the metropolis.

The Meat Guy – Fine Meats and Cheeses
As far as I know, the ONLY source of turducken in Nagoya is The Meat Guy. I was lucky enough to sample a turducken smoked by the master himself, TMG, and I can assure you that a duck wrapped in a chicken wrapped in a turkey is completely reasonable and tastes as fantastic as you would expect an affront to nature to be. Oh yes, and he also carries a full selection of roasts, lamb, steaks, sausages, turkey, meat pies, cheeses, sauces, and uh, well everything but vegetables.
Foreign Buyers Club – “Food and Fun from Home”
The Foreign Buyers Club started a co-op in the late 1980s importing items their friends missed most; bagels, breakfast cereal a nd peanut butter. Now the Foreign Buyers Club is an icon of the foreign community in Japan. Billed as “Food and Fun from home – direct to your door – anywhere in Japan;” this online international grocery store has been delivering the goods to the broader expat community in Japan since 1988.
