From the first minute I walked in as an Ivan Ramen employee, Kimura-san was teaching me how to peel Ivan's delicate hanjuku tamago. From then on, he was an integral part of bringing me up to speed with every task that needed to be learned. But today is Kimura-san's last day as he is off to land a job in the sake industry, which his hometown of Niigata is famous for. Best of luck to you Kimura-san! Thanks for all your help!
I won't share with you the five-letter word that Ivan said before taking this picture, but I can assure you that it was hilarious.
Anyway, so now we will be down one person for who knows how long. Can we handle it? Of course, but it will be a challenge. I'm ready for it!
