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!

Curry udon consists of udon noodles mixed with Japanese curry and tsuyu-dashi soup broth and soy sauce. It makes for a heartwarming bowl of deliciousness.
One of the best places to enjoy curry udon in Tokyo is at Maruka Udon. Its popularity is undeniable when you look at the daily long queue. At this restaurant, you really get a bang for your buck! The dishes are delicious and are offered for around ¥500, and you can upgrade the size for only ‎¥60. The udon noodles were the right consistency and the broth was flavorful!

It is curry rice, usually topped with an egg and baked in an oven.
A good place to try yakikare is at sanchome no kare ya san, although it isn't the easiest most English-friendly (the sign and menu is in Japanese), but it's definitely worth trying! It is very popular with locals. The atmosphere is very kissaten (old japanese cafe) style.
