Japanese pizza is notorious for its...

souvenir they won't soon forget!
The best place to sample authentic (or perhaps "original" would be
a better word)
Japanese pizza in Tokyo is the restaurant chain Shakey's Pizza,

the oddly named Strawberry Mix with cod roe, squid and
asparagus, or perhaps the simple elegance of the Kimchi Bacon
pizza with kimchi, bacon, leek and double cheese?
