The cafe's interior was adorned with delicate sakura flower decorations, creating a serene and enchanting atmosphere. The staff was exceptionally warm and attentive, adding to the overall inviting ambiance. As for the afternoon tea, it was truly delightful! Each item showcased meticulous attention to detail, and the combination of ingredients was simply exquisite. The matcha, sakura and strawberry parfait was my favorite! While the selection leaned towards sweets, there were also savory options available. If you're considering booking this afternoon tea experience, I highly suggest arriving with an empty stomach to fully indulge in the sweet delights. I felt like a princess while enjoying this afternoon tea, making it an unforgettable dining experience!

Find The Unique Dining Experiences in Japan

Japan is among the countries with the most Michelin stars in the world, and for good reason. Japanese cuisine is immensely diverse, encompassing a huge range of cuisines based on the region, occasion, and season. For example, there are deeply traditional and historic cuisines such as “kaiseki ryori,” the sophisticated multi-course meal; and “shojin ryori,” the humble Buddhist vegetarian fare. Dining experiences in Japan also vary by region, with each prefecture being home to its own specialty dishes and ingredients. Prized wagyu beef comes not just from Kobe, but also from Omi in Shiga prefecture and Matsusaka in Mie prefecture. In mountainous Yamagata, wild vegetables are harvested and eaten in a special regional hotpot dish called “sansai nabe.” In rural Japan, you may find fresh local produce prepared simply, while you may also find a variety of upscale and themed dining experiences in Japan, in urban areas like Tokyo and Osaka.

From intimate meals prepared by your own personal chef to dinner-and-a-show and farm-to-table meals, byFood has a wide range of dining experiences in Japan. Food is a gateway into culture, and a wonderful way to connect with people and learn. And who better to learn from than chefs and locals? From gluten-free dining experiences to vegan dining experiences, byFood has it all. So even if you’re plant-based, halal, kosher, or have a gluten allergy in Japan, you can still find delicious culinary experiences that suit your diet. Groups, couples, and solo travelers, can all experience Japanese culture through food.
