I ate at more than 1,000 restaurants in 3 years!!
I am a Japanese middle-aged man living in Okinawa. I was an office worker until the corona shock. I went on a business trip all over Japan, and sometimes abroad. I visited more than a thousand restaurants in three years.
When I was 12 years old, I went sightseeing at Sapporo by myself. The ramen I ate at the university cafeteria was very delicious. When I was 14 years old, I went on a trip with a friend for 3 nights in a night train. It is an ordinary chair. There is no bath. At that time, the taste of buckwheat I had in Osaka was very memorable. When I was in high school, I used to work part-time to save money. Then I went on a trip. I had a lot of memories of the taste, such as Genghis Khan I ate in Hokkaido, a cup of 10,000 yen coffee I drank in Nagano, and ramen I ate in Wakayama.
I was taken to a high-end sushi restaurant while I was a student. I was surprised at the taste. I was taken to a popular yakitori restaurant. I have encountered many things I have never eaten. Then I became a member of society and went on many trips. I moved many times, so I searched for a good restaurant in the area. I got married to a Chinese wife and got to know Chinese food and culture. After that, I visited China and Taiwan many times at work and enjoyed the authentic taste. I divorced my wife. And I came to work all over Japan.
The company I work for has suffered serious financial difficulties due to the corona shock. My job has disappeared because the company has reduced work. I left the company. I don’t have any business trips now and I stay home everyday. In Japan, the person who stays at home every day is called the NEET (Not Employment Embattled Team).
Now is the time for patience. Everyone has to stay still. But by 2022, I guess human beings can clear the coronavirus. Until then, enjoy reading my article. Imagine the deliciousness. When the era of traveling around the world like before has returned, I would like everyone to visit the restaurants and taste them.
Although blogs always have comments, I’m not really good at socializing. With every depression, I’ve been sick of looking at the dislikes and undersides of humans. I gradually became less fond of interacting with people. I was harassed and bullied at the company I worked for. I didn’t want to go to the office. I also hate SNS. So now I don’t want to talk to anyone but my family and a handful of people. If you really want to contact me, please use the form.
Thank you for reading.
