[ Story ]

A documentary that examines how the people of the Japanese archipelago have interacted with nature and the wisdom they have gained from it with regard to food. It was ranked second in Kinema Junpo magazine's best ten cultural films of 2014, and the winner of Outstanding Documentary of the Year at that year's ATP Awards, (Association of All Japan TV Program Production Companies).
"Dashi," an essential ingredient in Japanese cuisine, was discovered within nature and integrated into the diet over a thousand years. Cameras follow all those who contribute to the making of dashi, from fishermen and farmers to scientists and chefs. Futhermore, special microscopic camera work examines the "koji" mold spores which are unique to Japan and gave birth to soy sauce, sake, miso and other central ingredients of Japanese food.
