Special Exhibition "It's a Tasty World" - Food Science, Now! Exhibition Outline

Food Science, Now!

"Eating" means to "Live." Eating is an important action that links our lives and forms our body and minds. How far is our knowledge and our selection regarding "our diet" is correct? From the standpoint of cutting-edge science and technology, we will look at various problems related to food such as the problem of disguising production areas, the problem of BSE, the decrease in the farming population and the world-wide increase in population.

How is science and technology currently related to our lives, society and the future that make it possible for us to say energetically "ITADAKIMASU!!" and "GOCHISOUSAMA!!"? What does it mean to "eat deliciously?" This exhibition will address the question, what is necessary in order for us to live an enriched, "delicious" life.
