The exhibition includes a simulation of a visit to a sushi shop in Japan. People who know little about sushi will greatly enjoy getting acquainted with the cuisine at the exhibition, whilst keen fans of sushi will find the entire event fascinating too.

Through sushi, the exhibition will also strive to communicate something about the history and customs of Japan, according to the organisers.

Yosakoi performances and craft activities such as Origami paper wrapping will be held during the course of the event.

Back in 2013 UNESCO inscribed washoku, Japanese cuisine, on its Intangible Cultural Heritage list, with sushi being the archetypal example. Sushi is a refined and healthy food that looks good and tastes good, meaning it has already become a familiar item on menus worldwide.

Sushi has now spread outside of Japan’s borders and is enjoyed by people all around the world. This function aims to provide an in-depth visual guide to the appeal of sushi. It includes the chance to learn about how Japan took in sushi in its original form; as well as how it modified sushi to suit the natural environment, culture, and lifestyles of individual areas worldwide.
