Joining online experiences like virtual tours of Japan and online cooking classes with local hosts is a fantastic way to travel to Japan or prepare for an overseas trip without even leaving your home. Gain new skills during a virtual cooking class; have a virtual tour of fish markets, shochu distilleries, and other facilities; or join seasonal experiences to learn about special holidays and celebrations in Japan! For spring, you can join seasonal online experiences like virtual hanami (flower viewing); or in winter, find out about Oshogatsu (Japanese New Year) celebrations.
Through the lens of food, you’ll explore Japanese culture, learning from home cooks, local experts, craftspeople, and farmers themselves! These virtual tours of Japan will help get you connected with locals, learn about Japanese food, and prepare for your next trip to Japan!
