Christmas in Japan
Traditionally, Christmas has not been celebrated in Japan as it is mostly a Shinto and Buddhist nation but in recent years the idea of coming together and sharing with families and friends has become popular around Christmas time. As well as this, the traditional holiday Oshogatsu is celebrated around Christmas. It is on this holiday that the Japanese people place huge importance on the gathering of families to spend time together and a large part of this is, of course, feasting together.
The earliest records of groups coming together to eat and drink in Japan go back to the 8th century, so they’ve been doing it a long time and know how to have a party, and while we at Taste haven’t quite been around for that long, we like to think we do too. Here at Taste, we put an emphasis on sharing with the people we’re with, that goes for our food and good times. Our sharing menus and feasting menus are designed to give you authentic Japanese food with an emphasis on togetherness and sharing and we think that is exactly what they achieve. Our chefs provide a wide selection of authentic Japanese food cooked in a variety of ways to showcase our tour of the 5 tastes for you and yours.
