Area: Yamaguchi｜Taiken Japan
Easily the most beautiful restaurant that I have visited in Japan so far is the Sanzoku restaurant in Iwakuni. The entire complex is owned by a family who bought it many years ago, and who turned the surrounding forest into a restaurant, a small temple, and the most delicious BBQ chicken that you can lay your hands on.

Japan is filled with many places that you wouldn’t think of visiting by simply hearing the name alone. Nishi Iwakuni Station is one of those places. Chances are you wouldn’t likely find yourself making a stop at Nishi Iwakuni Station during your travels through Iwakuni City unless it happened to be where your train was stopping on the way to another more notable destination. However, those who pass by this site are sure to miss out on experiencing a beautiful piece of history.

Living in Japan is a wonderful and very exciting experience. Japan is such a different world and a bit of a culture shock for new arrivals, but its history, tradition, festivals and wonderful food will soon make you a very happy resident! However, what foreigners also quickly realize is that English is not a frequently spoken language in Japan, which means that you are likely to face a few obstacles if you do not speak any Japanese.

Curry seems to be everywhere in Japan. From ready-made packets at convenience stores to hotel restaurants and everywhere in between the tremendously popular Japanese style curry is often somewhere on the menu. Although a delicious option wherever you go there are times when cravings for more traditional and complex flavors take over.
