The modern term "Japanese cuisine" includes not only traditional-style Japanese food
but also foods whose ingredients or cooking methods have been introduced from abroad
and developed by Japanese people, making them their own. Japanese cuisine is known for its emphasis on seasonality of food, quality of ingredients and presentation. The Michelin Guide has awarded Japanese cities by far the most Michelin stars of any country in the world (for example, Tokyo alone has more Michelin stars than Paris, Hong Kong, New York, LA and London combined).
