A Journey to Japan


A MAJESTIC CULINARY TOUR THROUGH JAPAN

DATE: Nov 4 – 11, 2018 | Highlights: Tokyo * Kyoto * Hakone

Japanese cuisine offers a lot more than sushi. Japanese cooking vacations and culinary tours offer visitors a wide variety of seasonal foods, as well as a unique blend of ingredients that combine the use of ancient staple foods such as rice and noodles with a burst of flavor from their popular use of soy sauce, miso, and grilling methods that create exceptional and exquisite foods ranging from sushi to fish and vegetable dishes and soups. As noodles are a major ingredient in most Japanese cooking styles, cooking classes in Japan offer visitors unique ways to use Soba or Udon noodles served cold or hot in a variety of styles and flavors.
