I began to go to a sports gym where we need to wear a mask and have our temperature measured at the entrance.
I wonder this type of arrangement will be permanent under this circumstance.
With a mask, I feel I consume more calories, though.
Now restaurants and shops open and operate as usual. It seems that people go out at night as well….
There are still very few tourists in Tokyo.
Have you ever been to a quick sushi place?
It is an automated sushi where sushi is carried by a belt conveyor. It is called ‘Kaiten Sushi.’ ‘Kaiten’ means revolving and it is usually a belt conveyor.
Maybe you have been there if you travel to Japan.
One plate usually costs 100 to 200 yen (1 to 2 USD) with 2 nigiri sushi, and I find it very convenient when I am hungry and I don’t have time.
The first Kaiten sushi was opened in 1958 in Osaka, by a person called Shiraishi san. Shiraishi saw a belt conveyor in a beer factory and thought it could help busy employees.
He created a place to eat sushi standing in 1947, and changed it to a belt conveyor style in 1958.
Sushi is regarded expensive food on a special occasion e.g family dinner.
So fast food style and sushi waas not a good match, but apparently Kaiten Sushi makes a niche ( or a big ) market now.
There is an ideal speed of a conveyor for a customer to think and decide to take a plate. It is 0.14km/hour, well I don’t know how fast it is…
The sushi place is called ‘Genroku Sushi.’ and now it is VERY big.
This is a good example to create an idea. An idea doesn’t have to be innovative. A good idea is born when you combine exisiting ideas from different industries or fields.
Shiraishi combined sushi with a belt conveyor.
I guess that is what I need to do – combine existing ideas.
I am not able to create completely new brushes as famous makeup artists do. I need to hear what clients say and add those elements to current products.
This is one small step I make now – I will add a cheek brush to Fude Japan.
It will be made by Kyureido, with grey squirrel.
I will let you know when I begin to sell them.
These brushes will consist of
I will keep you updated,
