Traditional Cuisine


Japan's world-famous cuisine has roots in centuries-old tradition and places a huge emphasis on seasonality. Washoku (traditional Japanese cuisine) usually features the fundamental ingredients of rice, noodles, seafood and vegetables. To get a flavour of washoku, we recommend that guests sample soba (noodles), tempura (fried battered fish or vegetables), kaiseki (a beautifully-presented, multi-course meal), and sukiyaki (a slow-cooked hot pot dish). Book your hotel using the map above and look forward to sampling delicious washoku.

Seafood


Japan is world-renowned for fresh, seasonal and accomplished seafood. The top dishes to try are: succulent Japanese oysters; mouth-watering matsuba (snow crabs); sashimi, (thinly sliced raw fish); sushi, which is a tasty ball or wrap of vinegared rice combined with other ingredients such as raw fish or vegetables; and the master of all Japanese seafood, bluefin tuna. Want to book a hotel near Japan's best seafood restaurants? To sample the best oysters, go to Hiroshima, where you can stay at ANA Crowne Plaza Hiroshima To taste the finest matsuba, visit Tottori, where you can stay at ANA Hotel Yonago.

Japanese Confectionary


When it comes to wagashi (confectionery), Japan has a delectable mixture of sweet treats. Try: higashi, a sugar candy moulded into colourful shapes; yōkan, a sweet jelly dessert; castella, a delicious sponge cake; dorayaki, made with two pancake shaped castellas and filled with sweet red bean paste; and taiyaki, a fish-shaped pancake filled with custard, chocolate or other tasty fillings. When you check in to your hotel, ask us to recommend the most popular local wagashi vendors. Book now using the map above.

Japanese Beverages


Japan boasts an exquisite range of traditional alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. If you're curious to taste them, try sake, a brewed liquor made with fermented rice, water and yeast, often ceremoniously served in special porcelain sakazuki cups. Sample some Suntory or Nikka whiskey, and sip awamori, a distilled liquor made from rice. Don't leave without trying traditional Japanese matcha (green tea). When you visit, ask us to reveal our favourite local spots for sampling traditional Japanese beverages.

If you want to visit the Japanese home of awamori liquor, go to Okinawa. During your visit, stay at ANA InterContinental Manza Beach Resort, ANA InterContinental Ishigaki Resort, or ANA Crowne Plaza Okinawa Harborview.
