For those who have not yet seen a single episode of Terrace House, it’s a Japanese reality show that features 6 strangers living together. Three guys and three girls come to live in Terrace House for different reasons. In the course of a couple of weeks, they get to know each other, form friendships, and sometimes, even fall in love.


While most of the time, they prepare their own restaurant-worthy meals in the house, the members of Terrace House do explore the city to eat out. Here, we compile a list of restaurants you can check out and live out your own Terrace House fantasy while you’re in Japan.
