Lavish Herbal Feast--A Taste of Japan Menu

Washshoku (wa = Japan/harmony/peace and shuku = eat or food) is the word representing the deep-rooted traditional foods of Japan, which are forms of nourishment as well as moritsuke (the Japanese love of beautifully plating food in individual small dishes as an art.)
