Hello everyone,

Today, I would like to talk about diversity. Diversity of food is the first thing we think of, but there is more to diversity for us to think about.

Our goal is having the same food together, including allergen- and gluten-free, vegetarian to vegan, organic foods and Halal foods for Muslims, foods for Hindus, Kosher foods, and so on.

We have a saying, “Eat rice from the same pot.” That means, we’ve been through a lot together, and have a strong bond after having a meal together. We then value our friendship and a deeper understanding of each other. I personally think that, it would be a wonderful thing to have a worldwide party where everyone can share the same meal.

But diversity is not only about foods but other factors as well. For example, we want to welcome handicapped people or people in a sexual minority. LGBT makes up to 6% of the world’s population.

Toward the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games, we have to prepare a lot of things, for example, restrooms or fitting rooms adopted for diversity. But we must not spend these occasions preparing temporary things but continue to brush up our “Omotenashi spirit” beyond 2020.

Enjoy your week.
