Transport your kitchen for the day™


In Japan, food is a ritual respected by all. Here, food culture can be intimidating to travelers. Every dining experience has its own set of etiquette and each region its own unique culinary distinctions, the preservation of which has become increasingly more important. In fact, UNESCO recently added Washoku, or traditional Japanese cuisine, to their list of 'Intangible Cultural Heritage', meaning the preservation of traditional Japanese food is considered critical in maintaining the culture. Dive into Japan’s cuisine and you’ll find a treasure trove of history and cultural insights. Fresh seafood, seasonal eating, miso, bento boxes, and more – the flavors of Japan await.
