Tastes of JAPAN

Press event, 'Tastes of JAPAN' in Kagoshima

On Tuesday, May 17th, a press event for Tastes of Japan by ANA Kagoshima was held at Hotel Shirayama in Kagoshima City, Kagoshima Prefecture, Japan. We welcomed many guests, such as Kagoshima Prefectural Governor, Yūichirō Itō, and the Mayor of Kagoshima City, Hiroyuki Mori. As we approach the 150th anniversary of both the Satchō Alliance (a military alliance between the feudal domains of Satsuma and Chōshū to overthrow the Tokugawa Shogunate) and the Meiji Restoration in 2018, Kagoshima is a place bursting with energy and excitement, and we are delighted to introduce the prefecture's food, drink, sweets and culture to you.
