What is the “Transmission of Japanese Culture in English Project” to learn about Japan that even Japanese people don’t know about? In March 2021, AEON Co., Ltd. launched the “Japanese Culture in English Project” with the aim of conveying Japanese culture to the world in English. So far, we have covered “Japanese culture that even Japanese people don’t know”, such as “carp streamers”, “miso”, “sake”, and “ekiben”. This time it will be the 7th installment.
