Bestor has written widely on the culture and society of Japan. Much of his research has focused on contemporary Tokyo, including an ethnography of daily life in an ordinary neighborhood, Miyamoto-cho. Since the early 1990s his primary research has concerned Tokyo's Tsukiji fish market where he has studied the economic anthropology of institutions, and has focused also on food culture, globalization, and Japan's fishing industry. He is the author of three books, Neighborhood Tokyo (1989), Doing Fieldwork in Japan (2003), and Tsukiji: The Fish Market at the Center of the World (2004).
