A chef slices a portion of greater amberjack while preparing sashimi at the Akasaka Umaya Japanese-style restaurant in Tokyo December 5, 2013. The "Washoku" traditional Japanese cuisine was added to UNESCO's Intangible Cultural Heritage list on December 4, 2013, raising the government's hopes of enhancing its global recognition, attracting more foreign tourists and boosting exports of the country's agricultural products, local media reported.
