    Wow! Nice documentary, it was an interesting glance at how it is to work for yourself in Japan. The whole concept is really great, good work! I’ll definitely try to share a video of life where I’m from some day.

    Congratulations, Greg, on this one going viral! Very captivating, Netflix should come calling with an offer.

    Where is Kurimoto San’s ramen shop? Is it in Tokyo? How do we get there when we visit Japan next spring ? I make ramen at home but broth isn’t as good as Kurimoto’s. His kitchen is cleaner than mine.

    Hi Greg. I’ve watched this a number of times btw! I’m going to Toyko in May and I plan to eat here. In your opinion when is the quietest time to visit and… I’m there over 4th/5th/(6th)/7th which are public holidays and a Sunday. Do you think he would be open??? Many thanks.
