Foreign Press Center/Japan fellowship

I took part in an eight-day fellowship program of the Foreign Press Center/Japan centered on the culture of Japanese cuisine (washoku), drink, health and nutrition. It was a wonderful opportunity to travel through Tokyo and environs and Kyoto to explore childhood nutrition, the national school lunch program, fermentation technology, nutrition research, and the art of Japanese confections (wagashi).

Sake bona fides!
