Japanology Plus explores Japanese life and culture. In this five-minute digest, we look at wasabi, a plant that grows natively in Japan's mountain valleys. It's used to make a condiment with a distinctive green color and an eye-watering heat. Most commonly served with sushi and soba, it has become a pillar of Japanese cuisine. We examine its history, and some of its many surprising uses.
