DASHI & SHOYU -- Japan, Man and Nature in Harmony

For centuries, the Japanese have learned to draw from the treasures of nature. With no space to grow food for all, Japanese cuisine distilled, instead, the very best from its oceans, the forests and mountains. We take the viewers on a microscopic journey to the genesis of the pure and restrained art of Japan's cuisine whose twin pillars are a delicate stock named "dashi" and the golden sauce they call "shoyu."
