Japan's Culinary Heritage

We are expanding our portfolio with the exciting launch of our new unique culinary adventure “Japan's Culinary Heritage”. With this new adventure, we want to show travellers the importance of Japanese food culture and how culinary traditions reflect the Japanese way of life. In Japan, food is the best way to engage with local lifestyles and to gain an in-depth experience of regional culture, the daily life of Japanese communities, and individual inhabitants.

This 11-day guided exploration features key locations such as the ancient Imperial capital of Kyoto, the modern metropolis of Tokyo, as well as hidden rural villages and the unique culture of Awaji Island in the fabled Inland Sea. From foraging for wild ingredients and harvesting the bounty of the land, to cooking lessons with emblematic figures and ordinary members of local communities, this culinary adventure reveals how food is the most intimate way to uncover Japan’s history and culture.
