If you’ve been subscribed to our newsletter, you’ll know that we’re planning to travel to Japan at the end of November after we finish up here in Bali! The main purpose of the trip will be to explore the incredibly diverse cuisine of Japan.

My understanding of the cuisine is limited to sushi (of which I’m obsessed), tempura, gyoza, western-style bento boxes and fried rice. Dariece and I both can’t wait to head to Japan as foodies, in search of the best traditional Japanese cuisine (和食 washoku).

During our research, we were contacted by JNTO USA who are running a pretty cool giveaway for free round-trip airfare for two from the USA to Japan! Their campaign is foodie based and they have famous Japanese chef Dale Talde creating 3 delicious looking recipes.

All you have to do to enter is head to this page or click the button below, and choose which recipe you like the most!

Enter your name and email along with your vote for best recipe and you’ll be entered to win free flights to Japan.

(NOTE: This contest is only available to residents of the 50 United States, and those over the age of 18 years old. Contest runs from November 1, 2017 – February 28, 2018)

My favourite looking recipe is the Bonito Spiced Tuna. I’m definitely going to try to find it while we’re travelling in Japan. Share the contest with your friends and tell them if they win, they have to take you! That way you can multiply your chances of winning.

The recipes to choose from are as follows:

1. Wagyu Beef Skewers

These marbled beef delights are cooked with Japanese scallions, sweet potatoes and a maple soy glaze. I’ve never had wagyu beef before, but these were my second choice in the list. Chef Dale prepares them with incredible precision and by the time they’re on the plate, they look like a piece of art.

2. Bonito Spiced Tuna

This is my personal favourite of the three. Mainly because I love lightly seared tuna, but also because the my mouth watered the most while watching this video. Placed on a bed of pickled mustard seeds and golden beet dashi, this is the most colorful and simple of the three recipes, but probably packs the most flavour.

3. Tea Steamed Red Snapper

Cooked matcha-style verde with crispy brussel sprouts, this dish also looks incredibly delicious. I’m not a huge fan of cooked fish (I think it’s so much better raw or lightly seared), but this one is Dariece’s favourite on the list. Matcha is a tea powder that I’ve never tried so I can’t really imagine the flavours of this dish, but I’m now going to see if I can find it while we’re travelling in Japan.

  1. How come you’re Canadians but your fellow Canadians can’t enter this contest? It’s only for Americans?

  2. I know I’m really sorry! We have mostly American readers so we figured it’s a pretty cool giveaway for them, but we’ll keep our eye out for more free trips for Canadians and everyone else around the world! We do have international giveaways in our newsletter if you want to subscribe

  3. Japan is my favorite country to visit. I may visit there next year. And this post makes more exited to go there.

  4. OMG sign me up. Mark at migrationology has some really good Japan foodie videos. It’s super pricey but if you have the budget, check out matsusaka beef. Highest grade beef in the world 🙂
