Good Relationships
During a long internship, it is important for us to build good relationships with our partners as well as technology transfer. One of the best ways to do this is to eat and play together. In Japan, there are many affordable flour-based dishes. For example, okonomiyaki, yakisoba, and ramen.

Okonomiyaki is a dish of thinly sliced cabbage mixed with batter made of flour, eggs and water and cooked on an iron griddle. You can choose any ingredients or toppings that you like. Okonomiyaki is crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside. Modanyaki, which is okonomiyaki cooked with Chinese noodles, is also popular. Please eat the okonomiyaki with sauce, mayonnaise, green nori and bonito flakes. Okonomiyaki is also good for your health because lots of vegetables are used.
