The first phase of "Tastes of JAPAN by ANA" showcased the best of Japan's cuisine represented through ANA's in-flight meals and videos. The program mainly promoted each of Japan's 47 prefectures, introducing the local foods and ingredients, as well as sightseeing locations. We will soon successfully finish covering all 47 prefectures by the end of November 30, 2017.
Starting this December, "Tastes of JAPAN by ANA" is moving on to its second phase. Instead of examining 47 prefectures every three months, we have divided the country of Japan into eight regions, and will further closely examine each region for six months to introduce the culinary specialties and hidden gems across Japan. By focusing rather on a wider area, our aim is for our passengers to explore more than one prefecture in one trip and enjoy each of its local specialties.
The first serie will bring forward the vast beauty and uniqueness of Hokkaido, its local foods, as well as traditions and history, from the world-famous Sapporo Snow Festival to the snow-lit paths of Jozankei. There will also be 33 meals and desserts served on ANA flights and its lounges, representing local specialty ingredients.
