International Webinar Session on Traditional Vegetables: Developing East Asian Empathy Model for Utilization of Genetic Resources and Related Traditional Knowledge for Asia (July 8th, 2020) will be held.  The researchers and educators from China, Korea, Malaysia, and Japan will present and discuss the origins, productions, and common cooking methods of traditional vegetable on Zoom.

Goal

China, Korea, and Japan have all made the colorful histories of traditional vegetables for a long time. Suizenji-na, a traditional leaf vegetable, is called differently by place: Kintoki-sou in Kanazawa, Suizenji-na in Kumamoto, and Handama in Okinawa. This vegetable was brought from Southeast Asia to Okinawa via China. Furthermore, Suizenji-na was named after Suizenji, a neighborhood in Kumamoto City. From Kumamoto to Kanazawa, a sailor on Kitamae-bune (a cargo ship in the Edo era) is said to have carried the vegetable. 

Researching the origins and cooking methods of traditional vegetables reveals that these vegetables have connected areas in Japan and countries in Asia. Through the presentations about these traditional vegetables, this webinar aims to 1) enhance an understanding of the common cultural characteristics and their changes in the region with empathy in a deeper way; and 2) share the information on the research of the transmission of knowledge on the traditional vegetables.
