Re­gent Taipei set to present Ja­pan’s Kagoshima cuisines this Novem­ber

The China Post - - TAIWAN BUSINESS -

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.
