Lets Start The Week With A Small Puzzle,

how many different kinds of beans are grown in Japan?

 food writer Kiyomi Hasegawa traversed all of Japan to bring you this wonderfully laid out typology of Japanese beans,

  the book was designed by Azusa Kawaji

 who helped organise and assemble the beans in a clear and intelligible way that emphasises the round, cuteness of the beans but also where they’re grown, the origin of their names and how they’re eaten locally,

 the book is in Japanese only but it’s full of everything you ever wanted to know about Japanese beans,

and the answer is? Japan has almost 200 different varieties of beans, I ever knew that, until now.
