Grade B Gourmet, the Traveller’s Friend

The secret is that there's a lot of wiggle room budgeting for food. Yes, you can drop up to 15,000 yen per person for a high-end kaiseki meal or a deluxe Matsuzaka beef dinner. It's also very possible to spend as little as 300-700 yen per meal, without suffering from the great drop in quality you might expect from such a big price difference. The Japanese even have a term for such cheap-but-good eats: Grade B Gourmet.
