Certified Perfect English Menu is easy to understand and use, even if you don’t know a lick of Japanese. It caters to foodies as well as English-speaking tourists trying to figure out what to expect before they visit. You can search for restaurants in Kobe, Kyoto, Osaka and Tokyo, or surf the Web site by price and cuisine.

EngMenu.com also knows that travelers might not always want Japanese food and lets you know where to find Italian fare, restaurants good for vegetarians or those where English is spoken.

But some of the links had blank pages. If you are clicking on special features such as “Cheap Eats” or “English Spoken” and are not seeing results, there may not be any — or at least very few — in that city.
