Online food documentary series The Perennial Plate spent two weeks travelling around Japan to create a stomach rumbling short film – From Japan with Love (and Dashi) – looking at the country and its tantalising food. If that leaves you feeling hungry for more you’ll also want to check out Jiro Dreams of Sushi which tells the story of a 85-year-old Japanese sushi chef who has been on a relentless quest his whole life to perfect his craft. I’ve already seen it twice and love seeing how the notions of developing good taste and keeping things simple can be applied in all areas of life.

In related news, I’ll be in Tokyo Nov 17 – 24 on a bit of a fact-finding mission. While I wont be forking out $20 per minute to eat sushi, if anyone fancies meeting up feel free to get in touch.
