Japan’s Food Manga ‘Oishinbo’

Million-seller manga writer Tetsu Kariya talks about his work

Japan’s manga are famous around the world and one of the most well-known in Japan is the Oishinbo series, created by Tetsu Kariya. Oishinbo (the title combines the Japanese word for delicious,oishii, and the word for someone who loves to eat, kuishinbo) is focused on Japanese food and has been published since 1983 in Japanese and since 2009 in  English translation. It was also made into a TV series.  The storyline concerns the adventures of culinary journalist Shiro Yamaoka and his partner (and later wife) Yuko Kurita.

Mr. Kariya will introduce his philosophy of manga and Japanese food.

There will be time for questions, followed by networking over drinks.

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to meet one of the most acclaimed manga writers, who moved to Sydney to live more than twenty years ago!
