    Japanese sake has a history of 2000 years and it is truly a precious, soulful beverage. However, the consumption of Japanese sake has been steadily declining over the last decades. On the other hand, sake is becoming increasingly popular outside Japan.

    In this episode, we will discuss what is happening in the Japanese sake industry and its future based on the takeaway points from the first-ever global sake summit! We will also discuss the shochu industry, a traditional Japanese spirits that is as important as sake.

    Lessons From The Shogun-Era Japanese Diet

    Our guest is Joshua Schlachet who is the Assistant Professor of Japanese History at The University of Arizona.

    Josh is a historian of early modern and modern Japan, specializing in the cultural history of food and nourishment in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, which was the era of powerful Shoguns and the subsequent westernization. But the scope of his work is way beyond it sounds! His research includes global and comparative food studies and histories of science and health, which we can practically apply to our modern (and often problematic) lifestyle.

    By the way, Josh joined us on Episode 98 as an instructor of the Wa-Shokuiku program, which teaches elementary and middle school students in the U.S. about Japanese food and foodways through hands-on cooking and learning activities.

    In this episode, we will discuss the flourishing Japanese food culture in the 18th and 19th centuries, which also gave birth to our favorite Japanese foods including sushi, the unique healthy diet philosophies back then, how we can apply them to our life and much, much more!

The rakugo-ka would quickly draws you into the story and you would feel as if you were sitting right next to the characters. And there is always a surprise punch line at the end! That is why rakugo has been very popular for centuries. Rakugo is becoming global lately and there are even non-Japanese rakugo-ka like Katsura Sunshine who joined us on Episode 102.

Well thought out and prepared, you can tell that this is not done off the cuff. Love the topics and the Japanese take on things. Thank you so very much!!!

The greatest program!!

This is the greatest program I have ever listen to. Akiko always makes very good preparation including studying, actual visiting and tasting of the products of each theme. And she is very good at dragging out the stories out of the presenters.

This program is not only good for those who wants to know more about Japanese food and culture but also for Japanese themselves to know about how Japanese culture can be explained and is know to outside Japan.

Highly recommended.

Akiko’s pronunciation

Please speak more slowly and clearly. Too much like chewing gum English.
