From time to time, one gets a taste of something unconventional, something he does not get or see every day, or even every month. Simply listents to his own calling. Specifically, it may just be the desire to taste something Japanese.
Japanese food is generally known to be healthy, full of vitamins and other beneficial things, it is not full of calories and uses plenty of vegetables and seafood. And it also look so imposant.
