Haven’t you ever wondered about the condiments (seasonings such as wasabi, ginger, Japanese mustard, grated radish added to the food to enhance the flavor and whet the appetite) when eating Japanese food? These are not just here for decoration but are the wisdom of the health-conscious Japanese cuisine. Wasabi in sushi refreshes your mouth and has antibacterial effects, while the grated radish served with tempura contains digestive enzymes improving digestion. Japanese cuisine has incorporated such wisdoms since ancient times in order to make the meals even more enjoyable.

Alongside these wisdoms, digestive medicine is also incorporated into daily life in Japan.
