Sushi, sumo and sakura: a personalized foodie tour to Japan

Eat your way around a foreign city with Gourmet Trails‘s Holiday for Foodies program, which caters to food lovers—these private trips require a minimum of two people to actually take place (the cap is 12 people) and are entirely customizable, so you choose your own accommodation, restaurants and more. You’ll even receive a custom travel kit (that includes a handy trip itinerary booklet) that will suit your preferences to a T. 

In the pipeline are plans for a Sumo & Sushi tour that’s slated to take place in March 2015, to—you guessed it—Japan. While details have yet to be finalized, participants can look forward to sushi making classes with a professional chef, Japanese tea ceremonies in a traditional garden, as well as lots of eating, from street food to “Jiro Dreams of Sushi”-style omakase fine dining. Plus, you’ll get to experience the thrill of grand sumo tournaments. All these, while basking in the wondrous beauty of sakura blossoms (the trip will be timed to coincide with the cherry blossoms season). 

Finer details and pricing will be set in stone sometime this September; however, Gourmet Trails are already accepting registrations, so email [email protected] or visit their website for more updates and enquiries.
