January 16, 22 and 24, 2013: "Itadakimasu!" The Japan Foundation presents a series exploring Sustainable Food Systems and Mindful Eating

During the month of January, our friends at The Japan Foundation in Toronto are looking at an essential, universal topic: food. The series begins on Thursday, January 16 with a panel discussion on the relationships between food consumers and producers in Japan led by Dr. Motoki Akitsu, Associate Professor of Philosophy of Agricultural Sciences in the Graduate School of Agriculture, Kyoto University.

The following week (January 22 and 24), there will be screenings of two Japanese documentaries, "Eatrip", a contemporary Japanese food culture documentary, and "Red Persimmons", a classic ethnographic film about the production of hoshigaki (dried persimmons) in rural Yamagata prefecture.

For more information, including full details on individual events and contact information, please visit The Japan Foundation's website.  Registration for the panel discussion on January 16 will be required, which can be done through the website.
