HIroyuki - that was fascinating. I'll be watching all these episodes on YouTube (glad it has all the English subtitles). The sushi making episode has made me hungry.

Okay, thanks to Peter Green's "Travelogue: Spirited Away" and Hiroyuki's "Niigata Sushi Shop" threads, I found and watched both seasons of Kuitan this week.

Thank you for bringing this show to my attention! Totally awesome. Although, I have to admit, that it totally sucked having cravings for curry, okonomiyaki and croquettes and 3am. I especially liked the bits of history & backgrounds for the different foods featured in each episode. And, of course, the pure campiness of the whole series which reminded me of the tokusatsu and dramas that I grew up watching. :D

The first ramen shop wasn't opened until 1910? That was the same year Korea was forcibly annexed.

I've got to practice doing that thing where he flips the spoon out extended into the air (ala John Travolta).
