The English Guide to Restaurants Using Locally Sourced Ingredients Now Available!

The Tokyo Metropolitan Government (TMG), in order to promote local food production and consumption, has officially registered select restaurant locations as “Tokyo’s Locavore Restaurants“ and “Locavore Dining in the Tokyo Islands” (herein referred to as “registered restaurants”). These venues actively utilize farm and marine products cultivated in Tokyo. TMG has published a guidebook to further promote these establishments.
