Fueling community, feeding dreams.
Growing up in Tokyo, Japan food has always played an important role in my life. From elaborate New Years' Day feasts bringing my extended family together to late-night Ramen shop hi-jinks with friends growing up, food has facilitated communication, forged connections.
My father and I would wake up at 3 am to go fishing and stay out, despite rain and cold, until after sunset, bonding over the sport. Exhausted by the long day's effort, we would always head to our favourite Ramen shop to warm up from the inside out.
