Useful Websites to Get Around Japan: Guide Websites Part.2

This is the second part of “Useful Websites to Get Around Japan: Guide Websites.”

Although we’ve carefully curated, there are so many services which should be spread out and must help international travelers to Japan.

Let’s roll out our second installment.



Pocket Concierge is an online restaurant booking platform, specializing in first-class restaurants in Tokyo, Yokohama, Kyoto, and Osaka.

For free of charge, you can make reservations at high-end restaurants easy. No need to make phone calls, even to pay at the restaurant as checks billed automatically on your account.

One of the unique services they offer is a waitlist system. Yet you can book the restaurant months before you visit Japan, some restaurants they recommend tend to be fully booked before a long time
due to the high-popularity, especially for Michelin starred ones.

In such case, try the waitlist by registering the date and course you wish. If a seat opens up, the system will search for the waitlist and automatically confirm your reservation by notifying you via e-mail.

English and Chinese available.
