Might sounds little strange to tell foreign tourists to try McDonald, especially when they came all the way across the ocean to experience Japanese cultures. However, it is actually interesting to try and compare McDonald’s foods in Japan and your country. Japanese McDonald’s have some really interesting products on menu, such as french fries with chocolate source, and tofu nuggets etc.. Also if you are from America, you might surprise over Japanese McDonald’s small serving portion compare to how much they serve in America.
Food is one of the fun elements to explore when you visit foreign country. You will surprise how many unbelievably unique fast food you can find in Japan. It is really fun to try new strange but delicious thing. When you visit Japan, try those out. Experiencing Japanese fast food can be one of your fun memories while your stay.
