The Embassy Take on Tokyo: Thailand


This time, we're joined by the Thai ambassador to Japan. He moved here in 2016 and has been busy enjoying all that Tokyo has to offer. Today, he shares some of his favorite spots in the city for dining, sightseeing, and more.



Shabusen A shabu-shabu hot pot restaurant that offers Japanese wagyu beef and other delicious meats. Although shabu-shabu is usually a shared dish, Shabusen patrons can enjoy individual portions. The shop's sesame dipping sauce, which is prepared according to a top-secret recipe, is a consistent crowd-pleaser.


Keawjai A long-running Thai restaurant located in Kinshicho. With 200 dishes to choose from, everything from big city staples to countryside favorites is available. Thanks to its use of authentic ingredients and traditional cooking styles, Keawjai has been recognized by the Thai government.


Tokyo National Museum Founded in 1872, the Tokyo National Museum is Japan's oldest museum. Its collection contains around 110,000 items, including National Treasures and Important Cultural Properties.
