We are pleased to inform you that in 2022 we celebrate the 30th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Japan and Georgia. In this regard, our embassy has already held many cultural events. Please find information here: https://www.ge.emb-japan.go.jp/itpr_ka/11_000001_00256.html
As a new cultural event, we are delighted to present a touring exhibition “I Love Sushi” that focuses on sushi, the most popular Japanese cuisine around the world. Exhibition will be held at the Tbilisi History Museum (8 Sioni str.) from 12 August to 14 September. Opening ceremony will be held on 12 August at 17:00.
In 2013, UNESCO inscribed washoku—Japanese cuisine—on its Intangible Cultural Heritage list, and sushi is the archetypal example. Sushi is a refined and healthy food that looks good and tastes good, and it has already become a familiar item on menus worldwide.
Sushi has now spread outside Japan’s borders, and is enjoyed around the world. But although it has become a familiar food, many people have only discovered a few of its attractions. This exhibition aims to provide an in-depth visual guide to the appeal of sushi. It includes the chance to learn about how Japan took in sushi in its original form, how it modified sushi to suit the natural environment, culture, and lifestyles of individual areas. It also introduces today’s vibrant sushi culture, and it encourages us to think about the potential of sushi as a food for the future in the light of contemporary food issues. The exhibition includes a simulation of a visit to a sushi shop in Japan. People who know little about sushi will greatly enjoy the exhibition, and keen fans of sushi will find it fascinating too. And we very much hope that through sushi, the exhibition will also communicate something about the history and customs of Japan.
Finally, we would like to express our gratitude to the Ministry of Culture, Sport and Youth of Georgia and Tbilisi History Museum for supporting this event!
