Thankfully, Glasgow has some great restaurants offering a taste of Japan.
Here are the five best Japanese restaurants in Glasgow, according to Tripadvisor.
This Sauchiehall Street restaurant is loved by its customers, with ‘outstanding’ just one of the words reviewers have used to describe it. One even called it the ‘best Japanese in Scotland’.
4. Nippon Kitchen
Nippon Kitchen, on West George Street, takes pride in using only the highest quality ingredients, even if that means importing specialist ingredients from Japan. That must be part of the reason why 680 reviewers have given it five stars.
3. Ichiban Noodle Bar
Taking bronze is this Queen Street restaurant, which has left customers desperate to go back. One person described it as one of the best in Glasgow - something their fellow reviewers seem to agree with.
2. Sapporo Teppanyaki
Second place and the silver medal goes to Sapporo Teppanyaki, on Ingram Street. The restaurant offers Japanese food with a western twist, with the meals made in front of the customers.

The Wudon noodle bar, set up by three sisters with a passion for pan-Asian food, takes the gold. This Great Western Road restaurant has 283 five star reviews - it has almost double the amount of five star reviews than all other reviews put together. ‘Amazing’, ‘great’ and ‘divine’ are just some of the terms customers have used to describe it.
