新店舗のメニュー開発のためにNYを先に発ったスタッフと合流し、朝から晩まで福岡の市場を視察。
日本は全国どこにいっても美味しいものが溢れていることを痛感。

半年ぶりに訪れたその地で、四半世紀前から繋がる友人達ともしばしの会合。
忙しい公務の合間を縫って駆けつけてくれた先輩、熊本で新聞記者として活躍中の同級生も一緒に、私があがるのを待ってくれていた。
長いこと会っていなくても、会った瞬間に昔に戻って話がはずむのは、多感な10代後半を共に過ごしたゆえん。

街は便利で清潔、食材は豊富。
何度行っても、福岡の魅力を開拓し尽くすことはないだろう。

Hakata-1


I joined the staff of New York who had business trip for the menu
development of new stores and researched market of Fukuoka from
morning till night.
I was keenly aware that Japan was full of the delicious food to the whole
country.

In the land that I visited for the first time in half a year, I met with friends
who lead from a quarter-century before.
Two classmates, a prosecutor and a journalist who worked in Kumamoto,
waited for me during my duty.
Even if we had not met for a long time, we could really enjoyed for the story
of back in the old days at the moment when we met, because we spent
together late teens.

The town is clean, convenient, food is rich.
Even we go there many times, we will never run out pioneered the charm
of Fukuoka.
