Pizza delivery is the tried-and- true foundation of food delivery. And it very well deserves this title: a hot, crispy pizza is the solution to virtually every hunger problem in our daily lives. Even with other options available, nothing seems to come close to the overall level of satisfaction available in a fresh pizza delivered to your door. Not to mention the toppings - pepperoni, extra cheese, sausage, hawaiian. Delizioso! Maishoku is your go-to place for ordering a pizza in Tokyo delivered to your doorstep by a pizza place near you.
In Japan pizza is ordered for many different occasions including: lunch and dinner when people don’t want to or don’t have time to cook, company conference meetings, home parties, hanami (cherry blossom viewing) and hanabi (fireworks viewing) christmas eve dinner before the strawberry cake dessert for Valentine’s Day and Mother’s Day (there are special heart shaped pizzas available). Maishoku is the place for 24 hour pizza delivery!
Although the origins of pizza date several hundred years back, compared to other countries, the pizza culture in Japan is relatively young and the first major pizza chain opened only 35 years ago. Once pizza as a cuisine had been accepted into the Japanese food culture, multiple pizza store chains, both domestic and overseas began to establish themselves in Japan. These days there are tons of pizza places that deliver in Tokyo and Maishoku shows you all pizza restaurants near you.
On average, a Japanese person will order pizza delivery about six times a year, however this is steadily increasing with the abundance of pizza stores opening up all over the country. As opposed to other countries, in Japan, pizza is not only seen as fast food. As many are aware, the Japanese people are the world’s most value-conscious, quality-obsessed consumers and are willing to pay a higher price for quality and convenience. Stores that offer premium pizza like Pizzakaya in the popular Roppongi district in Tokyo has taken advantage of the opportunity to deliver high quality pizza that customers tend to come back for again and again.
Three restaurants that often receive great customer reviews and that are frequently mentioned in the news are Pizzakaya in Roppongi (3-1- 19 Nishiazabu, Minato-ku, Tokyo) Pizza-Dano in Ikebukuro (2-9- 12 Kanamecho, Toshima-ku, Tokyo) RajaVetta (1-13- 8 Minami-Azabu, Minato-ku, Tokyo) Bistro Couscous (2-27- 6 Arai, Chuo-ku, Tokyo). Maishoku was early to recognize the quality of these restaurants and decided to feature them on the website for easy online ordering and delivery.

Most often the delivery man will use a three-wheeled scooter. In Tokyo alone there are thousands of these on the streets everyday and you have probably seen them driving back and forth carrying sizzling hot pizza in a special insulated case in a compartment in the back of the bike. Like the Shinkansen train drivers in Japan who take pride in punctuality, so does the pizza delivery drivers. Therefore you can always expect your food to arrive hot and on time!
