Tips for delicious and fun food[Yahyakuya File: Kagurazaka Yahyakuya Mizuka]

OL era when I felt the importance of eating habits

Kaori Ito, the manager

“Ruihana” is located right near Kagurazaka-dori, the main street of the city. The interior stands out in white and wood colors, beautifully decorated with colorful seasonal vegetables, creating a stylish atmosphere not in the traditional image of a Yahyakuya.

Fumiko Yajima, the founder of “Kagurazaka Yahyakuya Mizuka”, originally worked as an office worker, but after she retired she started her career and opened “Kagurazaka Yahyakuya Mizuka”. When asked about the reason for the unusual transformation, there is a philosophy cultivated from Yajima’s own experience.

“When I was an office worker, I heard that my work was very busy so I did not eat well, I did not pay attention to my eating habits. The result was cold, rough skin, physiological disorder. often becomes popular. I heard that I realized it was made up of many things, “said Mr. Ito.

Mr. Yajima found that vegetables make up 70 to 80% of Japanese meals. Vegetables here include all things that grow like plants, such as mushrooms, beans and rice.

“Since the Japanese are mainly vegetarian, eat less meat and fish, the plant-based diet should be suitable for the Japanese body, if any, eat vegetables. Through that, he wants to propose a habit of eating. He drank well to keep his body and mind steady, and he decided to start a Yahyakuya. “

With that in mind, after about two years of training at Tsukiji Mikuriya, specializing in vegetable and fruit wholesaling, I opened my own Yahyakuya Kagurazaka Yahyakuya Mizuka in 2009.

Starting from a small store of only 3 tsubo

When it first opened, it set up a shop near Ushigome Yanagimachi Station on the Tokyo Subway Toei Oedo Line and moved to the current Kagurazaka in 2014.

“It was still a small shop, but it was smaller when it first opened. The space was only 3 tsubo and the store had only two people! It was difficult to line up vegetables,” said Ito, who knew at the time. I look back on those days with a laugh.

The store manager, Mr. Ito, has been with the company for the sixth year. Originally a sports player in a business group, after retiring, he started working part-time at Mizuka.

“I have been paying attention to nutrition even when I was playing sports. The next time I want to do a food related job, I think Yahyakuya will be a good place to work. I am looking for it. . “

In such circumstances, I visited “Kagurazaka Yahyakuya Mizuka” and felt Yajima-sensei’s personality and strong feelings for vegetables, and was consulted on the spot “Please work part time”.
