Lunch for the Onishi Apprentice

Awaji Island is known for ornamental roof tiles called "onigawara." The artisans who make these tiles are known as "onishi." Okitsu Naoko is an apprentice of the craft who trains daily to become a full-fledged artisan. She and her husband, the onigawara workshop's president, eat udon noodles for lunch virtually every day. The quick and easy lunch allows for Naoko to spend her time honing her skills. We also visit a forestry academy to see what the trainees eat for lunch outside in the snow.
