Time Out says

[Update, Mar 24] This event has been postponed until further notice due to the coronavirus outbreak.


Traditional Japanese cuisine or washoku has roots that go back to the ancient Jomon period. Part of the Japan Cultural Expo, this extensive exhibition at the National Museum of Nature and Science introduces you to how the cuisine has evolved and to the cooking techniques and preparations that have been in use throughout the years. The prologue, shown on a large screen that takes up an entire room, will explore how washoku has had an effect on the world. You will then have an opportunity to see specimens of common ingredients such as fish, seaweed and vegetables, along with models, interactive videos and various types of media art.
