Do you know what a “Japanese Food Supporter” is? They are shops and restaurants that have received the official seal of approval from Japan’s Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries.
The Japanese Food Supporter Program certifies shops and restaurants that sell or use authentic, high-quality Japanese foods and alcohols. On 7 March, the stores HIS JAPAN PREMIUM FOOD & TRAVEL in LONDON and Sakaya at Pantechnicon; and the restaurants Sachi at Pantechnicon, Sakana Oxford, Monohon Ramen, and Issho-ni, a ceremony was held in London to mark the addition of six UK shops and restaurants to the list in 2021.
One of these restaurants, Sachi at Pantechnicon, presents dishes that combine traditional Japanese seasoning with fresh British ingredients. It also holds workshops to deepen understanding of Japanese food and sake, such as miso making master classes and sake and cheese pairings.
HIS JAPAN PREMIUM FOOD & TRAVEL in LONDON was also added to the list. The shop aims to let people in the UK experience and taste the charms of Japan, directly importing and selling local specialties from all over of Japan.
