One of the many places you can try Japanese curry in Tokyo is at Japanese curry rice Moyan curry. The original restaurant is in Shinjuku, but now has branches all over Tokyo. The particularity of this restaurant is that it is slow-cooked for two days, and then matured for two weeks, which gives it it's deep curry flavor. There is an impressive array of dishes to try from. For curry rice lovers, this is a go-to!
