Lunch time at Atagohama Elementary School
During lunch time, we sat together with the Japanese students in their classrooms and enjoyed our food. Each class had an appointed team of students to help collect and deliver food from the central kitchen. They do not have a canteen selling food like what we have back in Singapore.
Lunch was followed by a short break time, where all the students joined in games with the Japanese students. It was a fun experience for the all despite the language barrier.
Cleaning up the school with our new friends
Thanking our very warm and friendly Japanese hosts!
Marutai Ramen Factory
Our final stop for the day was the Marutai Ramen factory. Unlike traditional food factories, the Ramen factory was spanking clean and fully automated. We found out that the factory is capable of producing 20 000 packets of noodles in an hour. Another interesting tidbit we found out was that since the company started making noodles, it has till date created about 400 flavours of Ramen. As photography was prohibited during the tour, we could only take a group photo at the factory lobby.
