Junzo Nojima and Stamford's Cherry Trees: A Kamishibai Presentation
Junzo in the ship's galley
When Junzo was 12 years old, he graduated from elementary school. He said good bye to his parents, and went to Osaka depending on others to help him. After a while, and through the good offices of his acquaintance, he could get on a cargo ship which had an overseas route. Now, start to go abroad! On his voyage, Junzo served as an apprentice cook who cooked the sailors' meals, and he learned the basics of cooking from watching other people. This was his starting point for later being the manager of a restaurant.
