Ever heard of the saying "opposite attracts"?
Ever wondered why?

It is because opposites or different things are new and unique to what we have already seen, and that, my friend, is what excites us!

We invite you all to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the Indo-Japan relationship by accepting the “differences” between both countries and their cultures.

But you know what, we will always have something similar. Something which fascinates everyone is food. We can find many more similarities once we start exploring.

Let’s try different Japanese foods and learn about the exotic ingredients that are responsible for a healthy lifestyle and a longer lifespan. Food is culture and it projects the beauty and lifestyle we have carried with us our whole life.

Let’s exchange the gifts of love and acceptance with each other and treat ourselves with delicious Japanese food.
