Overview of event
Our social practice associated with an essential spirit of respect for nature “Washoku” was listed on UNESCO’s World Heritage list as an Intangible Cultural Heritage concerned it’s being lost. This sense of values and way of enjoying meals can be a key to solve the issues which our contemporary international society is facing to. Today, we invited representatives of education and research institutions in the US and Italy and Japan where its gastronomy practices are highly admired by the world. We would like to capture the trend of food culture in the world and think about shared values originated from Japan.
