Solo in Tokyo... Is eating alone taboo?

koshie | Oct 29, 2007 09:30 PM

I will be visiting Tokyo solo for 6 days in the middle of November. Since I am alone, I fear that my meal may be limited to quick Japanese eats (i.e. ramen, Mos Burger, 7-11...etc). Is it frowned upon the eat alone in a restaurant? I definitely dont want to miss out on a great sushi experience but I dont want people looking at me funny if I am lone. I love all types of Japanese food

Can anyone recommend any places? I will be staying at the Keio Plaza in Shinjuku but will be visiting all areas of Tokyo.
