Have you ever encountered amazing food in Japan’s local regions?


If you have visited Japan multiple times, then you have likely traveled beyond Tokyo, Kyoto, and Osaka and explored the local regions. What kind of food did you discover there?

Japan is a vast country with completely different climates, terrains, and food cultures, ranging from Hokkaido in the north to Kyushu and Okinawa in the south.

For example, the Seto Inland Sea is known as a “treasure trove of food.” Because the sea has many shallow areas, fish that eat abundant plankton grow in strong currents, resulting in delicious fish with concentrated umami flavors. Additionally, the mild climate throughout the year has made it conducive to not only producing agricultural products such as mandarin oranges, but also the flourishing of fermentation and brewing industries since ancient times.

In this way, each local region in Japan has its own food culture rooted in the local climate.

Although there are many Japanese restaurants and supermarkets in Singapore, there are still many undiscovered local delicacies from Japan that have yet to be introduced.

Our mission at Ottoson is to bring natural, healthy, and delicious foods that we have discovered on our travels throughout Japan to Singapore.
