Davos participants again this year will have a chance to taste and experience the finest the world of Japanese gastronomy has to offer at the Central Sporthotel Davos on Jan. 18.

One of the most-popular events during the World Economic Forum meeting, Japan Night will be hosted by The Japan Night Organization Committee, which is comprised of representatives of about 25 major firms from the private sector in Japan. The Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries and the National Federation of Agricultural Cooperative Associations will support this year's event.

"Japan Night aims to foster an understanding of Japanese food culture among the political and business leaders of the world through authentic washoku (traditional Japanese cuisine) and Japanese alcoholic drinks," said the organizing committee.
