What Is a Family Restaurant?
One type of restaurant that can be casually used for dining in Japan is the family restaurant. The name came from these restaurants designing themselves as places which could be easily used and enjoyed by families with children, but nowadays there are also plenty of people who visit family restaurants by themselves or to hang out with friends.
One characteristic of these family restaurants is their cheap menus. In this article, we will introduce Gusto, the only family restaurant that has at least one location in every prefecture in Japan.
