Sushi1Japanese cuisine was nominated to enter the UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage List in October, and now it is official: “washoku”, or traditional food and way of eating in Japan, has been added to the UNESCO list. The government is hoping to revive the interest of the younger generation when it comes to learning the traditional dietary cultures that should be passed on to them. The government also would like to continue passing on Japanese food culture to the generations to come and would like to work harder to let people overseas appreciate the benefits of “washoku”.
