Like a good haiku,
washoku is dependent on the four seasons
for fresh ingredients.

During the Heian period, food had not been the subject of poetry, but with haiku during the Edo period, all kinds of vegetables, fish dishes and especially the sweets for the tea ceremony, food became a popular topic for poetry, especially haiku.


Even the traditional sweets, wagashi (和菓子)
have a seasonal component to it.

The Japanese food needs its own English saijiki:
