The Kobe tour was amazing!! We learned so much about the town and got a beautiful scenic view at the end of the walking tour. We finished with some delicious food including Kobe beef cooked Teppanyaki style. Sumile was an amazing guide and we really enjoyed talking with her along the tour and learning more about Japanese culture. She has a wealth of information to share with you and is the sweetest person!! Highly recommend taking this tour, if you are not planning to stay in Kobe it is an easy day trip from Osaka.

We had a great time our last night in Tokyo eating some fine Japanese food that was catered to our dietary preferences. The couple was very nice and fun to hang out with while being served good food and drinks. Strongly recommend the experience as you learn about local traditions as well as their cuisine.

My favorite part of my entire Japan trip! My friends and I decided to splurge with this experience and it did not disappoint. Our chef was great, spoke a decent amount of English, and of course prepared the best sushi I have ever tried. The service within all employees was also on par. We got our experience to include sake and tried around 4 to 5 different sakes. They keep refilling your drink so in total we had about 10 glasses of sake. I recommend this no matter what.

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.
