'Tastes of JAPAN’ campaign, which was launched by ANA in September 2013, introduces regional beverages and cuisine to ANA flights, airport lounges and other services in order to raise the profile of Japan’s lesser-known prefectures, particularly to overseas customers, and drive tourism to Japan. The project is also intended to stimulate local economies, in part by boosting consumption of regional agricultural products.

The eighth phase of the project will introduce ANA customers to products from Toyama, Nara and Fukuoka prefectures between June and August 2015. This will include:

japanese dry curryDry curry full of summer vegetables harvested in Toyama

Served at DINING h in ANA SUITE LOUNGE at Haneda’s International Terminal in July. Worcester sauce and white sesames make the spicy flavor.

‘Scallop, ham and vegetables simmered in cream and wrapped in crape with Hokuriku wine sauce,’ ‘white shrimp crackers,’ will also be served and sold on board.

eclairÉclair with Nara’s Asuka Ruby strawberry jam

Served at ANA SUITE LOUNGE in the international terminals of Haneda and Narita Airports. The strawberry mousse with the refreshing, fragrant jam of Asuka Ruby harvested in Nara Prefecture is wrapped in choux pastry.

‘Sautéed sea bass and chorizo with Himotogarashi pepper grown in Nara, with balsamic apple vinaigrette including basil’ and ‘sirloin steak of Japanese Black beef grown in Nara Prefecture’ will also be served.

japanese OkyutoFukuoka’s Local cuisine

Available on board on international Business Class. The appetizer ‘Okyuto’ is produced from the seaweed ‘Ego-nori,’ a popular accompanying dish in breakfast in Fukuoka. The main dish is the steamed golden threadfin bream, the luxurious white-fleshed fish, which is highly valuable also in Fukuoka. Other offerings include ‘Hakata best chicken, foie gras and scallop galantine with tuna and apple salad on egg’ and ‘spicy cod roe rice with tea poured on it.’

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

Information on the featured prefectures is available on our dedicated web site in English and Chinese:
