CRITICAL STUDIES ON FOOD SYSTEMS AND SUSTAINABILITY IN JAPAN– SUMMER 2017 OPEN ENROLLMENT PROGRAM
Japanese cuisine, or Washoku, is widely recognized as among the world’s healthiest food choices, and it, along with the Mediterranean cuisines of Spain, Italy, Greece and Morocco, has been designated as an Intangible Cultural Heritage by UNESCO. The number of Japanese restaurants in the world continues to grow. But it is important to recognize washoku is a historical product — and practice – a result of naturalizing other food cultures over millennia. Today washoku is not sustainable without food imports, as Japan’ food self-sufficiency is the lowest among industrial nations.
