World Lifeな生活

Hello there! I recently went on a business trip to Osaka, Japan’s third-largest city. While there, I tried some local food and was pleasantly surprised. It got me thinking: Is the food back home in Shizuoka not as good? Maybe that’s why I enjoy eating out so much.

This reminded me of how people often joke about English food not being very tasty. It turns out, the English have a history of simple food, and that might have helped them conquer other countries in the past and deal with tough times during the Industrial Revolution. It seems like folks who really love food aren’t easily tempted by fancy dishes in faraway places.

But here’s the twist. I started wondering if the people in Shizuoka, like the English, don’t have a lot of fancy local dishes. If that’s true, maybe it’s an advantage when they go abroad to face tough challenges. I did some digging and found out that lots of folks from Shizuoka go abroad to help with volunteer projects through JAICA, Japan’s international cooperation group.

Guess what? Until 2019, Shizuoka sent more volunteers abroad than anywhere else in Japan. So, if you follow the idea that “simple food at home leads to an exciting life abroad,” Shizuoka folks are proof that it can work!

I know my idea might not cover everything, but think of today’s article as a friendly chat. Traveling to far-off places and trying new things is easier than ever, so if you’re not in Japan, why not plan a trip here? You’ll have amazing adventures and taste some fantastic food, too! Cheers to finding joy in every journey!
