Travel journalist Rudy Maxa and Washington, D.C. restaurateur Daisuke Utagawa present three videos that highlight three distinct regions of Japan, focusing on the nation’s food and food producers. From the ramen of the northern island of Hokkaido, to the sushi of Tokyo, to the Wagyu beef raised on the southern island of Kyushu, food is a window on the soul of Japan. Viewers will learn why there are more three-starred Michelin restaurants in Tokyo than in Paris and New York combined. Tokyo may be the world’s most energetic city, and its sushi is legendary. Japan’s southern island of Kyushu is the world’s largest producer of Wagyu beef, while one can taste the mountains, water, and earth in the ramen of Japan’s northernmost Hokkaido. These three videos will whet the appetites of viewers: a desire to travel and a desire to eat! Call 633-3700 to register or register online now.
