I'm planning a trip to Japan in a couple months.
Here in Korea, shops and restaurants often don't open until late morning--even most coffee shops aren't open for breakfast. The main exceptions are places like convenience stores and McDonald's. As much as I enjoy a McMuffin, I don't want to eat one every day that I'm in Japan.
Are there places open for breakfast in Japan? Or should I look into reserving a room in a hotel that includes breakfast?
When I travel, I like to try the local food. And I don't usually eat big breakfasts, but I like to have something to carry me through until I find lunch/my next meal--especially since I may not be on my regular schedule or know when I'll be eating again. It's difficult to enjoy a trip with a growling stomach.
