Hi everyone, I’m Asami I’m a foodie guide in Tokyo. I Love food and drink.
I grew up in a city called Susono, in Shizuoka prefecture, where you can see Mt Fuji pretty much everyday. After high school, I lived in the United States for nearly 10 years (Las Vegas , Palm Springs, Los Angeles). I have worked in multiple high end restaurants in Las Vegas.
I have been working in Arigato Japan since 2017. The thing I love about being a tour guide is meeting people from all over the world, and sharing Japanese culture with people who visit Japan. I also have a special interest in Sake, and I love to explain how to pair sake and food together.
It’s very hard to pick up one… I will say my mom’s cooking! Or Yakiniku (grilled meat) because it’s delicious! You need to try it when you come to Japan.
If you visit Japan in Autumn, try matsutake mushroom and Sanma fish !!! Japan is about seasonality and you can eat it only during this season, don’t miss it!
