Reconnect over a Shared Meal in Japan 

There are any number of articles on the Internet about the health and social benefits of sharing a meal together. It’s intimate, relaxing, and a chance to reconnect with family or friends. Nowhere is the connection felt more intensely than in Japan’s countryside ryokan. Guests are invited to dine on marathons of Kaiseki cuisine, a several-hour culinary art showcase served on tatami floors. Moms and daughters will enjoy sampling local delicacies while engaging in intimate conversation.
