December Newsletter – Japanese Foodies This is for You


Samurai Tours December Newsletter 2020

We strongly believe that Japanese food is the most underrated aspect of travel to Japan. Most people think Japanese people only eat sushi, but nothing could be further from the truth. A challenge is the lack of Japanese ingredients that is not commonly available outside of Japan. And boy, do our tastebuds suffer; because truly authentic ingredients is what makes Japanese food memorable. But not to worry, Samurai Tours has you covered.

During our tours, you will feast on the incredible, authentic taste, and you will be in heaven of the Japanese delicacies we introduce to you- from street food to the elegantly presented and delicious gourmet “ Kaiseki” style meals.  Whatever you desire, as you travel around Japan with us, you will experience what each region has to offer, its own unique varieties, and tastes, as guests of Samurai Tours. But we do recommend to try whatever the local specialty may be – we promise, you will be satisfied beyond your wildest dreams.
