“ Unique Customized Tour Fit for the Most Discriminating Foodies ”

Went on an amazing foodie driven tour of Wajima in the Noto Peninsula. Our amazing guide Mika took us to see the Wajima fish market for sashimi breakfast, Senmaida rice fields and to a salt farm dating back many generations where we blended our own salts. We also got to forage our own Kaga mountain vegetables with help of a local expert. Then we gave them to a local celebrity chef who Tempura’d them and served them to us around a traditional hearth. I could learn to like vegetarian meals after that one. Finally, we did some Sake tasting with a locally famous Toji sake master at his family’s brewery and tasted a Koshu (aged)Sake that was his age - 30. Then we had a surprise viewing of some of the best Sakura we saw on the trip. It was a really special and delicious day. Mika went above and beyond. Besides the tour itself she helped us with many unrelated issues, including helping us find and book a Ryokan that I could not have found on my own, and was available to help me with all kinds of questions about the area. She is one of the best guides I have ever had and I recommend her without hesitation to anyone.
