Now and then, people in Japan have loved “Oishii”.
As the Tokyo Olympics has approached, interest in the culture of “Edo,” the former name of “Tokyo”, has been on the rise both domestic and abroad. One genre that stands out, in particular, is “Ukiyo-e” for its vivid representation of Japanese culture throughout the Edo period. The depictions, often included “Japanese cuisines”, have been highly praised not only for its rare beauty but its ability to capture and convey the people’s lives of the Edo period in profound detail. In response to the recent addition of “Japanese Cuisines” to the intangible cultural heritage list, an original exhibition, "Oishii Ukiyo-e: The Roots of Japanese Cuisine" will be open to the public in April 2020. Visitors of the exhibit will be invited to a journey that captures the very essence of the Edo period through visuals, recipes, and actual representations of the techniques that existed during the time.
