The spring season of Japan is a fantastic time to visit as it is not too hot nor too cold. Several mountain vegetables can be found during spring, such as bamboo shoots or shiitake mushrooms. During this spring culinary experience, you can taste the flavors of spring with each meal and cooking lesson.

All Japan Tours takes you on a culinary journey like no other. Experience famous locations in Kansai, such as the ancient imperial capital Kyoto, as well as hidden rural villages and the unique culture of Awaji Island located in Hyogo Prefecture, where culinary traditions have been passed down from generation to generation. Our journey will include searching for wild ingredients, harvesting the crops of the land, and cooking together alongside members of local communities. Food culture plays a big role in Japanese society, as it is very closely related to festivals, rituals, and displays the way of life in each region.

Our adventure starts in Tokyo, where we will travel by tain to a local food market in Kanazawa. Here, we will be able to pick ingredients from the market, then later cook them with a professional chef. We will then travel to Gokayama to hunt for plants and vegetables native to the area, which we will later cook with the locals. Next we travel to Shirakawa-go, a World Heritage Site, and Takayama, where we learn about Okudo-san (earth oven) cooking and Furukawa’s specialty “Miso Senbei” crackers. We will also enjoy a kaiseki dinner, which is a traditional multi-course Japanese meal. Departing the mountainous region brings us to Sakai- City in Osaka, an area made famous by its steelwork. Learn about the art of Japanese knives and the forges that make them. Once we arrive on Awaji Island, we will experience a chef's artistry of "Foodscape", where seasonal foods are made to look like landscapes. From the island, we head to Uji where we learn more about Japan's unique tea culture and the origin of "sencha" tea. Our tour ends in Kyoto where we experience making tofu and participate in a traditional tea ceremony before saying goodbye at the farewell dinner.

For those that admire Japanese cuisine and culture, this tour is a wonderful option. With exclusive experiences, such as tofu making and cooking with the locals, you will have insight into the unique cuisine of Japan. Travelling from mountain villages to fishing ports, staying in rural thatched-roof houses and in the dazzling cities, experience the food and the culture, awaken your senses, and share unforgettable moments with the people you’ll meet on this journey.

Activity Level: Moderate
On our moderate walking tours, you will be on your feet for much of the day to experience the sights listed in the itinerary.

Who is a Moderate tour designed for?
- We recommend moderate tours for anyone who is able to climb stairs and is happy to walk about 1 mile/1.6 km per day.
