Food culture in Kyoto
The food culture in Kyoto was inspired by the spirit of humility of the Kyoto people,
and the elegance of the Emperors and of the nobles’ lives that were developed over the long history of Kyoto.
We believe that it is essential to protect the global environment,
and to promote a food culture for people to live healthy lives now and in the future.
A group from Kyoto Gyoen, the Eco-Cooking Committee, and Tokyo Gas,
has been working on the project “Kyo-Eco” for the purpose of promoting Kyoto’s rich food culture.
This is being done by environmental education and also by advocating Japanese food culture to the younger generations.
