Last week I took part in a meeting held by some public institution that purpose is to activate economy in Osaka.
Theme of the meeting was how Osaka can attract Chinese tourists whose number is expected to increase rapidly in future.
The institution tries to appeal to Chinese tourists Osaka as a gourmet city where they can enjoy foods Chinese tourists with a dashi made from boiling Japanese kelp and dried bonito.
The dashi plays an important role in Japanese traditional meals.
However it is a subtle seasoning.
So I told them my opinion that dashi itself is weak to give an impact to the tourists to motivate them to come to Osaka.
The meeting finished with the conclusion that next time we talk about how we can appeal dashi.
