Japan is a paradise for food lovers. The Japanese cuisine offers a variety of interesting and delicious dishes and stands out for its emphasis on using quality ingredients that change with the seasons and impeccable presentation.
Japanese cuisine includes a wide variety of styles, dishes and cooking methods. While in Japan you should make sure to experience the variety that spans from raw seafood (sushi and sashimi), deep-fried foods (tempura), noodles (udon, soba, ramen) to the ascetic and originally vegetarian meals eaten by Buddhist monks that evolved into today’s haute cuisine (kaiseki).
