On byFood, users can book food experiences through our site, like cooking classes and food tours, and make easy restaurant reservations without using Japanese. We aim to connect with travelers through every part of their experience, from the early planning stages to the trip itself, and maintain a connection long after they have returned home.

In addition, for every experience booking or restaurant reservation placed on the platform, byFood donates school meals to children in need through the Food for Happiness program. So far, over 560K donations have been made through this initiative.
