Secondly, venture off the beaten path to explore regional specialties like Hiroshima’s savory okonomiyaki and its authentic wasabi. Or, Hokkaido’s rich seafood dishes. Again, while still venturing into the regional specialties, remember to experience the artistry of Japanese sweets with wagashi-making workshops in Kanazawa or Kyoto.

Lastly, it doesn’t matter whether you’re a seasoned foodie or simply eager to explore the extent of your taste buds, Japan promises a culinary adventure like no other.
