Sushi Exhibition

14.01.2023 - 02.04.2023

Sushi, a staple of Japanese gastronomy, will be the highlight of the Japan Foundation’s travelling exhibition. The aim of Sushi Mania is to visually showcase the appeal of sushi, a Japanese dish that has become an integral part of our everyday lives. A special section of the exhibition will give visitors the opportunity to experience what it is like to enter a sushi restaurant in Tokyo.

Sushi, which is considered a staple of Japanese cuisine, has gained worldwide popularity for its flavour, purity, refinement and health benefits. Originating in Southeast Asia, in China, it has been established in Japan for over a thousand years, where it has undergone significant changes in the rich natural environment of the archipelago, as a result of human wisdom and ingenuity, and the constant urge to create tasty dishes as quickly as possible.

When people hear the word sushi these days, most people think of nigiri-zushi, which was born about 200 years ago in what is now Tokyo, Edo. Today, sushi has expanded beyond the island nation and is consumed by many people around the world. We will show how it has established itself in Japan, how it has adapted to the nature, climate and lifestyle of each region, how its culture has flourished and what challenges and opportunities it holds for the future. There are ways to love sushi and ways not to – we sincerely hope that both camps will enjoy this exhibition, which also offers a glimpse into Japanese culture and history.
