Little Tokyo

Little Tokyo, ManilaRamen? Sushi? Manga? Hai, it's all here.Some of the best Japanese restaurants in the country are no-frills affairs found in a compound called Little Tokyo. Zen gardens, red lanterns and Japanese signs almost give the impression that you're in Japan.

Restaurants here are generally owned by Japanese who have moved to the country to start families with Filipina wives. You'll find fresh sushi, sashimi and bento meals at Izakaya Kikufuji (+63 2 893 7319) and Seryna (+63 2 894 3855), ramen at Shinjuku (+63 2 819 1242), okonomiyaki at Kagura (+63 2 894 3656) and takoyaki at Ha Na (+63 2 828 8471). There's a small grocery and snack bar called Choto Stop, which sells soba and ramen amid a display of manga comics and Japanese TV.
