School Lunch in Japan - It's Not Just About Eating!

  • Опубликовано: 19 апр 2015
  • Get inspired to see how Japanese students operate their lunch period! You can see why "lunch period" is placed as a learning period in Japanese schools. Directed, edited and filmed by Atsuko Satake Quirk, Cafeteria Culture's media director. Visit to see how we bring in this Japanese style student-led operation into US school cafeterias on sorting their waste!

    In india these kind of activities are not considered respectful by school students but in Japan everything is taught from the beginning that's why they are well mannered and give respect to others

    Seeing so many videos about how so different culture is from different countries, it kinda makes me a bit ashamed at us Americans....Apparently our so-call freedom to do whatever we want is paid for in countless other ways....not to mention how inefficient and wasteful we are.....And mind you this is just from watching a video about japanese school lunches....
    Shakes my head....

    I always think that Japanese public schol lunch has insufficient nutrition.. Kids in that age should eat more, and have diverse nutritions.

    The kids are great everyone and everything is admirable. But this didn’t happen over night. This is a societal behavior that has been in place for a thousand years. These kids are happy doing this because it is fun and simple. They don’t know it but they have no choice. If they don’t conform to this they will not be in school and of course as anywhere it is law that they go to school. Acting out of the “norm” brings great pressure to the child and the family. This happy school picture prepares the children for the strict social conformity that will be expected of them as they grow up. Don’t make the mistake of comparing Japan society to the West, especially to the US. Japan does not have the civil liberties and “free spirit “ society that we have built. We have problems and so do they. Societies are not interchangeable, something Americans have to learn

    The principal was right, lunch time or lunch period can be very educational if you show children the values. Love how they're so hygienic, thankful, and responsible. It's amazing that they planted their own lunch (part of it), it teaches them where food comes from and the appreciation/value of food. Love that they recycle as well, teaching them to maintain our planet clean and beautiful 🌏❤️✨ They all seem to respect, care, and appreciate one another; just how all the people around the world should be doing. Man how I wish I could turn back time be a kid again and become a student of this wonderful school, but I'm glad that they have the opportunity 😊😊

    Man 😑 When I was on this guys age my mother gave me a lunch "good bye" and then a whole day without food 😂... I still remember a morning at 6 am when my mother made some toasted bread with honey for my father (it was all the food in the house) and when my little sister went to the table my father gave her his part and my mother said: you will go to work you have to eat.
    Father: don't you worry last night in my dream I ate until I was full, so right know I can't eat I'm full. 😂😂 my father was funny 😂😂 I surely miss him.
