‘Tastes of JAPAN’ by ANA Featuring Tokyo, Gunma and Wakayama Prefectures

December 23, 2016 Aviation No Comments Email Email

In September 2013, ANA Group launched its ‘Tastes of JAPAN’ campaign. This project, which introduces regional beverages and cuisine to ANA flights, airport lounges and other services, is designed to raise the profile of Japan’s lesser-known prefectures and boost consumption of regional agricultural products.

The fourteenth phase of the project will introduce ANA customers to products from Tokyo, Gunma and Wakayama prefectures between December 2016 and February 2017. This will include:


For International First Class passengers, ANA is pleased to offer “Deep-fried Tokyo Bay sea bass with green asparagus risotto and truffle-flavoured shellfish sauce”. Savour tenderly fried sea bass fillets topped with a generous helping of Kujo onions.


For International First Class passengers, ANA is happy to offer “Himuro pork ribs with Sicilian green olive condiments”. These choice spareribs of pork raised in the Himuro area of Gunma Prefecture, are vacuum cooked to an immaculately tender finish, then sprinkled with olive condiments and lightly grilled.

At “Dining h” restaurant inside the ANA SUITE Lounge at Haneda Airport, a special December highlight is a pot-au-feu selection concocted from Gunma Akagi chicken and Shimonita onions. This gourmet soup creation features the rich body and delectable flavour combination of choice fowl and vegetables.


For International Business Class passengers, ANA offers “Local Cuisine Wakayama”. The main dish of “Kishu Plum Sea Bream” is expertly prepared to stress the pleasantly fatty and flavourful meat. Shining alongside this fish delight are Nanko plums marinated in flying fish stock. The flavours of the soup and plums come together in a truly distinctive harmony.

Airport Lounges: Japanese Sake Corner

As part of the project, ANA customers are able to sample Japanese sake and shochu, the ‘Kokushu’ or national spirits of Japan at ANA airport lounges in Haneda, Narita and Kansai Airports.
