All Nippon Airways (ANA) is launching a new campaign called “Taste of Japan”.
The aim of the initiative is to raise the profile of Japan’s lesser-known prefectures by serving their regional dishes on ANA flights and at airport lounges. From June to August, the regions of Shizuoka, Hiroshima and Nagasaki will be featured. Some of the dishes to expect are:
Kinmedai from Shizuoka
As one of the most popular fish in the Shizuoka prefecture, the Kinmedai (Splendid alfonsino) is simmered and served with shrimp on a bed of Koshihikari (a type of short-grained rice) from Gotemba, located at the foot of Mount Fuji. This dish will be served in business class on select international flights.
Awayukikan made with lemons from Hiroshima
A traditional Japanese dessert that is famous for its unique sensation that feels like ice melting on your tongue. Made from a blend of jelly and the juice of lemons from Hiroshima. This will be available in ANA lounges at Haneda and Narita Airports.
Cold Nyumen noodles from Nagasaki
A special seasonal dish, the noodles are hand-cut and produced in Shimabara, Nagasaki, made from carefully chosen flour with high protein content. Available at DINING h, in the ANA Suite Lounge at Haneda Airport.
