Appreciate for ordering from Nihon Ryori Culture Committe (日本料理文化交流協会様）
In 1992, Mr. Hirohisa Koyama, who is a Japanese chef of the restaurant Aoyagi and the president of this association began to spread the Japanese culinary culture in France. Japanese cuisine has been regarded as intellectual property and authentic Japanese culture and is being actively exported. For the reason, Nihon Ryori Culture Committee was founded in December 2006 for promoting Japanese cuisine abroad.
