Guest Speaker Presentations
We are available to speak on a range of topics through the lens of our experiences at Hollywood Karaage.
Whether it is concerned with our business, raising children or changes in social welfare.
Or how did we come to challenge the global market from the middle of the rice fields in the remote countryside of Japan?
We can present information based on our actual experiences. The reality is even more marvelous than a novel!
