The ever smiling Mr. Akakura, Seiritsu's cafeteria boss and head cook.
Hi, Michael here clocking in for the in month. I have been back for 1 month now and I have had the chance to get back into the swing of things here, i.e. training and school. These are the 2 things which my life revolves around almost everyday of every week. I thought this month instead of just talking about how I am doing, for a change I am going to give you an inside look at what you will have definitely never seen and probably never heard of before in relation to Japan. If you thought Japanese only ate sushi think again...
The morning break cafeteria rush.
This story starts on my first day here at school. You would expect the students to be well mannered, respectful and so on, and most of them are including me. But when they hear the school bell ring for the lunch break it is like a fire alarm in their heads as they race off to the cafeteria.
Normally you think they are probably lining up getting some sushi or rice bowls, but it is the total opposite. The line-up is like a scrum in rugby pushing from every side, a survival of the fittest (a bit of an exaggeration but I think you get the point). And what is it all for...
...but the scrumptious, most delicious fried chicken you have ever laid your hands on, just like the famous KFC. So after they get their chicken it’s not over because they then drown it in mayonnaise!!! At first I thought what they are doing something crazy. But now speaking with 2 years almost under my belt I can say once you have tried it there is no going back. The chicken just melts in your mouth. YUMMY!!!
That’s all from me this month, just keeping you up to date with the facts. An amazing school, top quality coaching staff and ground for soccer and food which you just can’t get enough of.
