Wayo secchu (和洋折衷)

Wayo secchu' refers to the way in which Japanese style and Western style are blended together.

In cooking, it means to adopt the characteristics of both Japanese cooking and Western cooking in a dish; typical examples include 'anpan,' which is a type of sweet bread (Western) with azuki bean jam (Japanese), and a dish of Carpaccio using tuna fish. It also refers to the way food is served such as when Western dishes and Japanese dishes are both served together.

There is also a term 'wakanyo,' meaning the blend of Japanese, Chinese and Western styles. Further, 'wakon kansai' means to learn from China academically without losing the Japanese identity. Wakon yosai' is a term coined during the Meiji period to mean the same as above, but learning from the West instead.
