MasterChef Australia is off to Japan this year.
The TEN series is currently filming a week of challenges for its upcoming season. It follows from previous seasons visiting the US, Italy, UK, Hong Kong, Dubai and France.
“For us to go anywhere there has to be an amazing food culture and Japan has it,” Matt Preston told News Corp.
“Tokyo boasts 227 Michelin-starred restaurants. Around every corner and down every alley there is something exciting.”
The first day of filming is at Tokyo’s famed Sensoji Temple, which is nearly 1000 years old. Mount Fuji is the backdrop for another episode.
