For several reasons, it took more than a month to finally meet up with Kimura-san and have his farewell party. But it was well worth the wait. On this night, the employees of Ivan Ramen ate yakitori, drank s***loads of alcohol and settled any differences between us. This is what I love about Japan. No matter how much you can detest a person, everything evens out after a few beers. Well, in this case ten. Honestly, this was one of the most 楽しい (fun) nights I’ve had living in Japan.
