Theres a TV programme on NHK called Sarameshi, that features rice farmers and salarymen, describing a variety of work worldwide through the medium of rice. It’s interesting and fun to see the rice of people.
In this particular episode, a department head of a travel company kept a diary of what he ate each day. his diary has become a I bought the book and makes for fun book.
It’s getting better, or would that be an overstatement, as if like Sano Kappa? Although clearly linked to the authors life not just his work, the witty approach gives the book a sense of light-heartedness. Although the details of familiar shops and work places aren’t described there is a description of the ‘Motsu-nabe’ (hot pot) shop ‘Rakuten-chi’ in Fukuoka, which I love! Even though just a picture, I know the diary is trustworthy.
