American Thanksgiving Dinner in Tokyo 2018

Over the past 18 years living in Japan we have celebrated Thanksgiving at home and at restaurants.  Eating out is easy, but less intimate. Eating in feels like the “real deal”, but wow, all the shopping and cooking can put one to the test. Japan residents can easily buy frozen turkeys from Costco, National Azabu Supermarket, and Meiji-ya, as well as, online at Honest Bee (get yen off 1st time orders)  Foreign Buyers Club, and The Meat Guy. The only advice is to measure the inside of your oven before you go shopping to make sure everything fits. Enjoy your American Thanksgiving in Japan!
