Colorado-based Asia Transpacific Journeys, the leading travel company specializing in the Asia-Pacific region, with over 25 years of experience, has announced its new culinary trip to Japan. Led by James Beard Award–winning chef David Bouley, a Food & Wine 1989 Best New Chef, this trip will take an exclusive group of travelers to one of the most culturally rich nations in the world.
"It is with great excitement and profound honor to participate in the sharing and exposure of such a rich culture full of health, passion and detail;” explains Chef David Bouley. “A visit that I think will give greater choices of quality of life when visitors return back to the West."
Chef Bouley will accompany guests as they explore the cities of Tokyo, Kyoto and Nagano as culinary insiders. Highlights of the trip will include an early morning outing to Japan’s legendary fish market, a private cooking class co-hosted by a Japanese chef and chef Bouley, and a farewell dinner in the historic Geisha district.
Guests will also have a chance to tour a wasabi farm and a sake brewery, as well as other foodie- centric exploits. In addition to the culinary activities, there will visits to some of the country’s cultural centerpoints, including upscale shopping districts, art museums and an ultra-traditional Japanese inn. With insights and access that only chef Bouley and Food & Wine can offer, this singular tour promises first-class exposure to everything Japan has to offer.
