Celebrating washoku's Intangible Cultural Heritage status, awarded by Unesco back in 2014, the Mitsui Museum now shines the spotlight on Rosanjin Kitaoji (1883-1959); artist, sculptor, calligrapher and one of the greatest gourmet critics and restaurateurs of his generation. Focusing on Rosanjin's ceramics, an art form the culinary pioneer considered an integral part of traditional Japanese cuisine, the display also introduces visitors to the writings and philosophy of a man whose influence on modern washoku and the culture surrounding it has come to be appreciated anew in recent years.
