The words of the mistress of a stand-up eating soba noodle shop, "Family," in Tokyo. Breathe in / breathe out, eat / excrete, wake / sleep, work / rest ...... Life is an endless cycle of the same things. So it is more important than anything to look after and support them, and take care of them restlessly. Make workmates' meals, create the work environment or raise and nurse people. From "Soba Is Ready." by essayist, Yoko Hiramatsu.
