What an honor!


Japanese Curry Already within one month of being active in business we were asked if we could be interviewed about our new business venture in Montevideo. We just had opened our doors for catering for authentic Japanese food and a weekly pick up menu. For sure we did not expect that the second largest newspaper in Uruguay would notice us so quickly, even less to contact us. For the curious ones, let me add the link with the article, but notice the article is in Spanish (but google translation does a good job)

We are for sure honored to be interviewed and furthermore receiving now so many wonderful feedback and advice about our food. More details can be found on

our website
our Facebook site
our Twitter page

For sure we can give you as well some good laughs about the Spanish language mistakes we do on social media. Well we are still diligent Spanish learners.

Overall we are a very, very happy couple in Uruguay,

  1. Dear Sibylle ito (sibylleito.wordpress.com)

    Nice to talk to you.
    My name is Yuta Sugawara.

    How are you doing?
    I hope you are doing well.

    Currently, I live and work in Tokyo.
    First, sorry to message you all of a sudden.

    I saw your blog posts about Japan, which are so organized and easy to read, with your fantastic description of each location.

    So I thought the concept of your blog matches right up with the concept for this website we have in the works.

    We plan to invest in some serious search engine optimization, so we plan to see lots of traffic on the site, and the more content we can put on it, the more hits we can expect to get.

    Here’s a Facebook page we have up as a teaser while the site is under construction:
    https://www.facebook.com/TokyoLocalGuide/?ref=ts&fref=ts

    We’re looking to assimilate the content of some of your blog posts (in full) as topical content for pages on our site.
    We would include a link to the original post, as well as a profile blurb at the end which would also link to your blog. It’d be a great way to give some old posts more exposure, as well as the new ones.

    Plus, further down the line we could put out Japanese language versions of the same posts to bring you traffic from a larger clientele.

    Or even better, if you could write posts for your blog on our web service.
    It’d be great if you could collaborate with us on making content for the site as a volunteer writer.

    In the process, we’d be totally open to hearing input from you, like how the design on a blog page should look. You’d be an honorary member of the company.

    If you’re up for it, I’d really like to have you on our team.
    Let’s make a wonderful blog platform together.
    When it comes to attracting customers,I’m willing to go the extra mile.

    I look forward to hearing from you.

    Thank you.

    Yuta Sugawara

    • Dear Sugawara san,

      thank you very much for your comment. As you know from my blog I am no more living in Tokyo, but in Montevideo Uruguay. Therefore I do not think it is appropriate that I would still blog about Japan. Furthermore when you look at the dates of the posts, do you really want to like to old articles?

      Feel free to contact me directly in case you have any further questions.

      With best regards from Montevideo,

      Sibylle Ito
