Regent Taipei set to present Japan’s Kagoshima cuisines this November
Regent Taipei is joining forces with the Kagoshima Prefectural Government to provide a series of spectacular Japanese delicacies this November at the newly opened restaurant Azie and Brasserie.
Hsueh Ya- Ping, CEO of Regent Taipei, and Ito Yuichiro and Ikehata Kenichi, head and parliament president of Kagoshima, attended the official signing ceremony held at Regent Taipei’s ball room on Aug. 19 to celebrate this magnificent collaboration.
Hsueh Ya- Ping showed an enthusiastic attitude toward this cross- national cooperation. “Ever since the direct flights between Taiwan and Kagoshima were opened in 2012, many people have chosen Kagoshima as their new ideal holiday destination. Up until this year, Taiwanese tourists have made up 40 percent of the total inbound visitors to Kagoshima. Regent Taipei is glad to have this opportunity to work with the Kagoshima Prefectural Government and bring in the finest agricultural products, fresh meat and seasonal catch from Japan to Taiwan. With a professional and experienced culinary team, we are confident about presenting a full table of authentic Kagoshima cuisines for all guests to enjoy.”
Located at the southwest part of Kyushu, Japan, Kagoshima lies in the humid subtropical climate zone that is perfect for living. With the active volcano Sakurajima nearby, the land is covered with fertilized andosol soil, which nourishes various kinds of unique crops and animals, including the black- skinned and well- marbled tender Berkshire pork; the natural and mineral- rich black sugar from Tanegashima; the amber- hued black vinegar; the smooth and pure sake; the faintly scented yet rich- flavored green tea and more.
