With a bounty of regional specialities and world-class restaurants, food lovers will discover culinary paradise in Japan’s extraordinary cuisine. Whether you want to sample sushi – the country’s most famous dish, opt for a tasty bowl of udon soup paired with deep fried tempura or try raw horse – a local delicacy in Matsumoto, washed down with a healthy serving of sake, the choices are endless.

We have loved every minute of the tour. It was a surprising mixture of discovering Japan. The information provided by the tour operator was perfect. We know exactly what to do when and every ticket was already there. nice hotels and very knowledgable and flexible guides. We highly recommend this tour.”
