Washoku, or Japanese cuisine, was registered for the UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritages Program in 2013. Its transient beauty, with natural ingredients, refined techniques, and spatial sense, has been the object of Shinichiro Ogata's work throughout his career. In this beautifully produced book, he demonstrates the modern, innovative, but truly traditional aesthetic of washoku, as curated for the University Museum of the University of Tokyo. This collection of photography of Japanese cuisine, with ingredients and selected tablewares by Shinichiro Ogata, a prominent designer who works on Japan's total art of washoku, conveys the aesthetic principles of the pinnacles of Japanese culinary achievements.
