From soba, sushi, tempura, and grilled eel restaurants popular with townspeople in the Edo period, to sweets enjoyed during travel and shrine pilgrimages, “soto-tabe” (eating out) has a long history in Japan. This exhibition focuses on Japan’s culinary culture, reconsidering what it means to eat outside the home.
