I welcomed a solo traveller from Florida, USA. He looked like a professional basketball player (and he does play at uni team) but he was also keen to cook some Japanese home dishes.
There was no other partipants on this day unfortunatelly and we need maximum 2 persons to open a group lesson, but he was so keen that he didn’t mind taking a private class on his own.
The menu was; a lot of Gyoza, a lot of sushi rolls, eggplant with sweet miso sauce and a bowl of miso soup of course. He really surprised me with 2 things; first his big appetite, then his T shirt.
He was the first guest I ever had who prepared a special outfit for this occasion of Japanese cooking class. It was a bright orange T shirt with the lette of 亀(Kame, a turtle) on it. He was a great fan of the Japanese comic book story “Dragon Ball” since he was a little boy. He told me he bought it at Don QuiJote store in Tokyo.
Once food are all done and we were ready to eat, he changed into his Dragon Ball T shirt and smiled for my photo! Good job, mate.
Thank you for a big smile and thank you for choosing us!
