My Dream is to Open a Ramen Restaurant

Takashi Komeka

My daughter goes to a Japanese immersion school. Sometimes I look at her homework and I think: That’s too hard! I came to L.A. to study art and graphic design. I liked it so much that I stayed. I go back to Japan once a year. I miss the food, especially ramen. The ramen in L.A. is similar, but it’s not there yet. My dream is to open a ramen restaurant.
