Japan's Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries commissioned this great video dealing with the global food crisis. A lot of their ideas sound pretty standard to me (eat local, less meat, etc.) but it was interesting to see a Japanese perspective on it. An island country with very little arable land is going to deal with food much differently than a country like the US or China. The endorsement of traditional Japanese cuisine over what appears to be essentially Western food seems like a very conservative response to overweight citizens and high food prices to me.

Anyway, I really shared this video because I really love this group's work, you can see more examples of it in HALFBY's music videos:
