Description[edit | edit source]

In the early 17th century, Japan entered a period of isolation known as "sakoku," heavily restricting people from entering or leaving the nation. It is a common misconception that this policy was designed to prevent foreign religious influence. Instead, the policy was established to see how centuries of isolation would influence Japanese cuisine. Japan closed its borders, and for 200 years they waited, cooking and experimenting.

In 1853, the policy was lifted, and the World Cuisine Conference was held to see how radically different modern Japanese food was compared to other new regional cuisines. At the conference, Japan was excited to present an exotic new dish they called "Japanese fried rice." To their dismay, however, China presented a slightly different fried rice. This was only made worse when Indonesia, Myanmar, Singapore, and Thailand also arrived with fried rice.

While furious that the nation wasted 200 years of isolation on fried rice, the country nonetheless put their anger aside, opting to instead enjoy the delicious combination of rice, vegetables, and sauce.
