“Local Eats” Japan Tour with PacSet Tours

in Japan, Travel

PacSet Tours

I’ve recently been in contact with a Japan tour company based in Los Angeles, called PacSet Tours.  This year they have a food themed tour scheduled for August (August 19 — 28, 2013) that is going to be amazing.  If you have ever wanted to experience Japan, this would be a great tour to try!  Unfortunately my kids start school at the very beginning of August, otherwise we’d be going.  The tour includes everything from experiencing Japanese bakeries, to an amusement park in Tokyo where you can sample things like squid icecream.  You get to visit Tsukiji Fish Market, one of my favorite places, where fish buyers come from all over Japan to bid on the catch of the day.  You’ll also get some hands-on experience by doing things like learning to make soba noodles.  The tour is going to be amazing, I only wish I could go!  But PacSet Tours has a little treat for LFM readers:

Oh my! I would love to join in the food tours but already love in Japan. Do you think they would allow people to attend tours only?

This is very interesting! Considering how much we paid for the tickets to Japan for this summer, I think this is such a great deal, not to mention stopping in Tokyo, Kamakura, Nagoya, Osaka, Kobe, and Kyoto and all transportation and accommodation included. I have some friends who might be interested. Thanks for the info!

@Nami — I know, isn’t it a phenomenal deal? The itinerary looks beyond fun too!

This is amazing tour!
Always wanted to go to Japan and taste their foods.
I couldn’t find what is the departure day though.


Lanny from PacSet Tours March 11, 2013 at 11:02 pm

Iryna — Sorry you couldn’t find our departure day! Our tour dates are August 19 (day of departure) to August 28 (return home).
