The first round of WBC was held in different countries, and one of the hosting countries was Japan.
Many teams came to Japan, and they all seemed to enjoy eating out in Japan.
Ramen was particularly popular, and there was TV news about the Australian team going to Iemoto Ramen, one of the famous ramen chains.
Lars Nootbaar, a Japanese American who played for Japan, also enjoyed eating ramen in Japan along with Gyoza and other Japanese foods. He grew up in California, and it is a rare occasion for him to eat authentic Japanese foods. That is the case for Japanese players who play in the major league when returning to Japan during the off-season. They love eating foods they can’t usually eat in the United States. However, that is not the case with Shohei Ohtani. He hardly eats out.
This is because he is on a strict diet.
What kind of diet is he on?
I made a video on it.
