The Noto Peninsula in Ishikawa prefecture, Japan is a region where the traditional knowledge of cultivating and preserving local produce has been passed down for many generations. These traditional techniques are also highly efficient and leave very little to waste. This is important now more than ever with the world facing challenges around climate change and food sustainability.
This film series explores this traditional knowledge from the Noto peninsula which is designated as a Globally Important Agricultural Heritage System (GIAHS) – Noto’s Satoyama Satoumi.
We hope this video will give you insight into the traditional food knowledge and skills of the Noto Peninsula and help you think about the future of our food.
We would like to thank Mr. Takahiko Ikemori (Ishikawa Prefecture), Ms. Watae Sawatani (Satoyama Satoumi Restaurant “Henzai Mon”) and Ms. Yuki Hagino (Team Maruyama) for their cooperation in the production of this video series.
