Over the past few years more and more people have become aware that Tokyo is the city with the most Michelin stars.

Japanese schools have a food scheme that makes very high quality organic food for the children. The classes with youngest students the food that they are having for lunch is part of the lesson.

Before the kids are allowed to go for lunch the class teachers review the menu with the school children. The children learn about the different ingredients that are included in the food. The children do also learn about the nutritional content of the various dishes.

Teaching children about healthy food and give healthy food for lunch the children gets healthy diets. It helps fight overweight children and future lifestyle diseases.

Japanese gastronomy and Japanese kendo in Brussels

This Friday I traveled to Brussels to spend some days in the company of my Japanese kendo teacher and kendo friends from Europe and from Japan. Japanese Kendo and Japanese sushi share the same Japanese philosophy and approach to becoming proficient in you line of work.

I spend the day with a long talk about Japanese gastronomy in Japan, Europe and Scandinavia. I matched my teacher Nobuo Hirakawa’s teaching both Friday and Saturday. I had eaten Japanese lunch also called a bento box.
