Miso itself would probably be a good topic. There are lots of associated foods with it. Miso tsuke is really good.

Wow, that's a lot, and that's just "task A!" If doing something Japanese, yeah, miso, or tea, or sushi would probably be good choices-- standard Japanese fare on which it'd probably be easy find a lot of material in English, whether online or in a library/bookstore, and which you could readily buy in the West without having to be 21 or more to legally get it (e.g. sake).

You can always start with Wikipedia. I suggest reading the article and then following the references for more information. Then google terms you found interesting or want to know more.

If you really want in depth stuff, go to your local library and talk to the reference librarian. Tell them that you are researching miso (or whatever) and ask what they can find for you.

Your profile (fariytailzero) says you're studying catering. Something that might be very fulfilling to study for this project, and also perhaps enhance a repertoire of dishes professionally would be izakaya fare. Izakaya are sort of Japanese pubs or taverns, and seem to have a whole culture associated with them, like English pubs. This past CR season's Wakakozake short anime series comes to mind as a crash course introduction.

Have you picked a food yet, or a type of food? We can probably help more once you narrow down your choices.

Miso soup is good. Basically, miso paste started in China around 2200 years ago and was used as a condiment like soy sauce is today. Soy sauce was derived as the run off in the miso fermentation process and replaced miso in China around 400 to 500 years ago. Miso entered Japan around 1300 years ago along with Chinese culture and learning. The basic process is fermenting soy beans after they have been cooked. The differences in modern red and white miso comes from the amount of koji, rice that uses a specific type of mold to break down the starches into simple sugars, and the more included, the whiter and sweeter the miso. I don't know the origins of the soup but it is common throughout Japan. Miso soup often is used in western Japan during new years as ozoni, soup with mochi.

I'm not quite sure but Genmaicha or Kukicha are interesting peasant versions of tea. Genmaicha uses roasted rice to save on how much actual tea they used and is fairly popular throughout Japan. A variation on Genmaicha is Matcha iri Genmai; it is normal genmaicha that has matcha powder added to give it a brighter green colour and more caffeine. Kukicha is tea made from the end of the season trimmings.
