Cuisine in any country is influenced by its geographical, socio-political as well as climatic changes. The fact that Japan is an island nation also has an impact on its cuisine. Typical Japanese food consists of rice and Miso soup, coupled with a variety of seafood, noodles, and fresh vegetables. Sushi has gained popularity worldwide, earning Japanese restaurants more Michelin 3 Stars, than even the French!
UNESCO has added Japanese cuisine into its list of Intangible Cultural Heritage, meaning it is important to preserve such a way of dining, for the survival of traditional culture. It is one of the 3 cuisines to have made it on the list. First being French, and the latest addition being Mexican cuisine. Food in Japan is more than just an item for consumption. It exhibits a kind of artistic and creative representation even in the simplest form of food, which makes it more appealing and worthy of appreciation.
The flavours could possibly be a little ‘different’ than you might have come across otherwise. It is essential to understand the dining & business etiquettes of Japan, in order to not be overwhelmed by it –
India and Japan have cultural and business ties since 1903. There are a number of Japanese companies in India, belonging to the manufacturing, financial, retail and automobile industry. Knowing these etiquettes is important, as socializing with your colleagues also plays a role in creating a good impression about your company.
