If you are an adventurous soul, you may want to try the Fugu cuisine while visiting Tokyo. Fugu is a name for the puffer fish which is indigenous to Japan. Although these tiny creatures are seeping with a neurotoxin that makes them poisonous to digest, many restaurants prepare this fish to make it edible and safe. If you want to partake in this Japanese delicacy, just do so with caution, although heavily regulated, it still can be a dangerous endeavor.
