Local and lesser known food

Description of this category

If you are interested in tasting local food that is lesser known outside of Japan, explore tours in this category. When people think of Japanese food, they often imagine sushi or tempura, but there is much more to discover! Every region in Japan has its own distinctive food culture which makes use of local ingredients. Even Japanese do not experience all Japanese food because there is so much variety. Because menus are often only in Japanese and many food terms are difficult to translate, it can be daunting to explore local food on your own. Why not let a Japanese guide introduce you to these new tastes? Guides will also be able to take your dietary requirements into account, whether you are vegetarian or eat gluten-free.
