Have you ever bought a food ticket at restaurant?
Well, we order food with food ticket in small restaurant, especially in fast food restaurants such as Gyudon shops and Ramen shops.
This is very common system for us, but I notice that many foreign travelers are confused with this system.
So, today I’m going to talk about this food ticket system in Japan.
The ticket for food is called “Shokken” 食券 in Japanese.
Recently, some of the ticket machine have Language button to chose your language.
I think many companies are now preparing for the next Japan Olympic year 2020.
However, most of the machines are still available only in Japanese 🙁
Call staff if you need help. They will help you even if they can’t understand what you’re saying.
By the way, these fast food restaurant tend to employee foreign students from another Asian countries.
So, they might to understand English or your language better than people in the street.
When you enter the restaurant with Shokken system, you will find the Shokken machine right next to the door or sometimes outside the door.
You have to buy a ticket before you sit down at the table.
After you buy a ticket, sit down at the table. Or wait in line.
The waiter will come to you with glass of water, so give the ticket to him/her.
That’s it! Now, you just relax and wait your food.
You don’t need to leave chips for them of course.
It’s really simple and easy.
