What is Washoku?

Washoku, literally translated, is the food of Japan. 

Passed on from generation to generation, it encompasses a variety of know-how and techniques that are used to prepare and present different dishes. For each dish, which includes ingredients such as rice, noodles, fish and edible herbs, there is both harmony and balance of flavor.  Special attention is given to the bounty of the season to take full advantage of the essential taste of each ingredient.

In 2013, washoku became inscribed in UNESCO's representative list of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.
