This culinary tour focuses on the art of Japanese cuisine, arguably the healthiest and most elegant cuisine in the world. In Tokyo, accommodation is at the Hotel Seiyo Ginza, home to some of the city's most renowned restaurants. Enjoy an early morning visit to the Tsukiji Fish Market in time to witness the height of the day's activity: the fish auction. Enjoy a sushi breakfast with the locals before exploring Kappabashi, the district of Tokyo selling traditional cooking utensils. There will be a hands-on, private cooking class at the home of Ms. Kiyoko Konishi, one of Japan's leading cookbook authors and authorities on traditional Japanese cuisine. Learn to prepare Japanese dishes of interest to you. Next spend an evening at the Gora Kadan, Japan's most exclusive inn and home to one of the world's top chefs. Conclude the tour in Kyoto, renowned for its kaiseki cuisine - essentially a tasting menu featuring seasonal ingredients that is beautifully presented on antique pottery and lacquerware. In addition to touring the major sights of Kyoto, also explore the city's oldest streets selling traditional cooking utensils, the Nishiki food market, and specialty food shops. Special meals include a vegetarian shojin-ryori lunch at Daitokuji temple, lunch at a leading soba noodle shop, and a gourmet kaiseki dinner.
