Nestled amongst the mountains of north-eastern Japan, where it is surrounded by nature and pristine seas, Tsuruoka City is a gem virtually untouched by foreign tourism, and blessed with a multitude of seasonal ingredients throughout the year.
Tsuruoka’s centuries-long history of living closely with nature has allowed it to develop
a unique and diverse food culture.
In 2014, it was designated UNESCO Creative City of Gastronomy.
