About Indian Cuisine in Japan
Japan, and especially Tokyo, has become a food destination for international flavors, many of which actually taste better in Japan than in its country of origin. Aside from French and Italian cuisines, Indian cuisine is widely popular among locals because of their love of curries.
Curry was originally introduced to Japan in the 19th century during the period of international trade by the British who were colonizing India at the time. Today, Japanese curry, which was more influence of lighter and sweeter British Indian flavors rather than traditional Indian, is one of the most popular local comfort foods. At the same time, Indian curry restaurants can be readily found throughout the country.
