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.

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.

High-End Omakase Tempura Course Meal at Tempura Ono
Dining Experiences
We had an amazing time! We brought 12 Americans that spoke zero Japanese and were hoping for a truly cultural experience and this delivered! Out of everything we did in almost 3 weeks across Japan, this was everyone’s favorite. The family was so welcoming and friendly. And the food was incredible, some of the best we had in Japan. But just having the experience to break bread, tell stories and jokes with people from difficult cultures is really incredible and not something people take the time to do. It’s truly a beautiful experience. And the story behind why they began hosting is very touching. I am really doing a poor job of articulating how wonderful the experience was. Just know if you’re on the fence, do it, and you won’t be disappointed. To the family, thank you again and you’re always welcome to join us in Wisconsin!

For gourmands looking to truly indulge, Japan offers some outstanding opportunities. Bejeweled with more Michelin-starred cities than any other country on earth, it’s arguably the best place on earth to splash out on some premium fine dining. Centuries of home-grown tradition has gone into developing the unique culinary culture of Japan, while in more modern times the country’s adventurous chefs have spread across the globe to master cuisines from far and wide.

In short, you’re not short options for premium dining in Japan. You could take it ultra-traditional with a high-class ryōtei meal, where you’ll be served a traditional kaiseki multi-course meal in a private tatami mat room, looking out over serene private gardens. Or if you’re looking for something a little more modern, why not try the wagyu beef steakhouses of Ginza, or outlets from some of the biggest names in European gastronomy like Joël Robuchon Tokyo.

Whatever you’re looking for, Japan has an outstanding lineup of sushi savants, wagyu wizards, and international experts on standby to serve your every need. With byFoods range of premium dining restaurants in Japan, you’ll be able to land a seat at their tables with just a few clicks.
