Did you know that Washoku (Japanese traditional cuisine) is registered as an intangible cultural heritage under UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) ?

Japanese cuisine and culture reflect the appreciation for the beauty of nature. Japan has four seasons and there are many festivals and cultural events throughout the year. Japanese people often celebrate these events by getting together and enjoying meals using seasonal ingredients.

In this webinar, we will explore the cultural events of fall and show you how Japanese people incorporate seasonal harvest into their meals.

We will also show you bento ideas perfect for picnics in the fall.

Come join us to learn about the side of Japanese culture not well known outside of Japan.
