After an arduous selection process lasting more than one year, 1650 regional dishes, both traditional and new, nominated from all over Japan were narrowed down to a final 100. That list has been translated into English and became available yesterday as a pdf download or as a printed copy published by the Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries Ministry!
All my favorites are on the list. Compare with what I personally picked as regional cuisine on Nihon Sun and you will see I did not miss too much!
