Financed by the Tokyo Metropolitan Government, a culinary website offers translated menu options in 12 different languages in an effort to cater to tourists. The site allows restaurateurs to make printable menus in a wide range of languages to ensure their international patrons have an easier time ordering. Menu Tokyo acts as a translator for diners as well as the restaurant itself.
The translated menu service helps local establishments retain business instead of losing customers over a language barrier. Menu Tokyo also has an online guide visitors can use to search for places to eat in Tokyo with multilingual capabilities. The platform can be filtered by food type or area and includes anime guides, descriptions of Japanese cuisine, printable conversation charts and hospitality guidelines as well.
