A couple of years back my flight got into Osaka at about 11:30am. It was too early to check in to the B-Kobe where we usually stayed, so my now Father-in-Law suggested a “light lunch.” After a bit of bumbling around the mountains of Hyogo and a couple of dozen plates later, “light lunch” became a sushi feast.

The name stuck, and we will still call our trips to the sushi restaurants “light lunch”.

Born in the UK in the early 70s, I’ve enjoyed a diverse and eclectic career. I spent time in IBM, survived the dot.com bust, got myself well known in Insurance, and lived through more digital transformation projects than is healthy. In late ’20, in the middle of a pandemic, I upped sticks and moved to Kobe, Japan with my wife.
