Explore Japan’s varied and exciting cuisine on a culinary tour from Tokyo
Pack your chopsticks and celebrate thousands of years of food artistry by diving into one of the world’s most elegant, eclectic and harmonious cuisines. Combine time spent seeing the country's sights with a scouting out of its prized eating and drinking spots. Watch yakitori sizzling in front of you in Shinjuku's Memory Lane, eat fresh-off-the-boat sashimi at the incredible Tsukiji Fish Market, learn to make soba noodles in a hands-on cooking class and take on a sumo wrestler – in the eating department – with a bowl of chanko nabe. Glimpse a geisha drifting through the alleyways of Gion while in Kyoto and experience a charming kaiseki dinner, otherwise known as a multi-course meal of seasonal and local specialties, at a traditional ryokan. If it's a trip that tantalises the tastebuds as well as sates the sense of adventure, this Japan Real Food Adventure ticks all the boxes.

Real Food Adventure - Japan SummaryAdd to Shortlist
The dynamic capital of an ancient land, Tokyo blends neon-drenched modernity with traditional temples, shrines and gardens. This trip allows you to travel in style to see the sights of Japan and have a gastronomic feast along the way. With over 20 different methods of Japanese cooking to sample, from okinomiyaki to fugu (pufferfish), there is no end to the variety and beauty of the art that is Japanese cuisine. This is a trip into Japan's heart and taste buds. Visiting all the major cities and some quieter destinations, we indulge our tastebuds from Tokyo to Kyoto. Join us for this brilliant combination of food, culture and the best of Japan's attractions.
Set amid a magnificent cedar forest, Nikko is home to some of Japan's most important shrines and temples - including the elaborately decorated Toshu-gu Shrine.
Koya-san has been the centre of Shingon Buddhism for over 1,200 years and today there are more than 120 temples scattered over the mountain peak.
Magnificent temples, stunning gardens and gorgeous geishas abound in Kyoto, the ancient heart of Japan's unique culture.
Famous for its cuisine, including takoyaki (octopus balls) and okonomiyaki (Japanese pancakes), Osaka has recovered from extensive bombing during World War II to become a global commercial centre. It's at night that the city really comes alive, transforming from concrete jungle to flashing neon wonderland.

Real Food Adventure - Japan, June 2014
The trip title was a little misleading. I booked late and did not spend any significant time reviewing the activities. Akemie was great to travel with and extremely helpful and organised. Any additional information we required she would research and get back to us.
