The Japanese sports magazine ‘Number’ published a part of Otani’s special interview in its latest issue online on the 16th. The interview was conducted at the spring camp of the Angels in Los Angeles, Arizona, USA at the end of last month.

When asked if his wish to go to eat teppanyaki came true, Ohtani said, “I couldn’t go to teppanyaki, but I ate leisurely in Japan. I also ate yakiniku (Japanese grilled meat). But I couldn’t go to the sushi restaurant. In the end, I ate out about four times,” he said.

In response to the confirmation question, “I’ve been in Japan for 3 months and only eat out four times,” Ohtani said, “There is no particular restaurant that I must go to, and it felt like deciding what to eat with whom to eat rather than what and where to eat,” Ohtani said. It was just a rough feeling like going to eat meat or something. This time, I didn’t go to eat with Mr. Kuriyama (Ohtani’s Nippon Ham Fighters former coach and current Japan WBC national team head coach), so I didn’t feel like I was in a separate room.”

Ohtani also said it was the first time she had been to a convenience store in Japan in years. He explained that he went to the countryside to shoot a commercial, but went to a convenience store because there was no place to deal with his physiological condition.

“I don’t know how many years since I came back to Japan during this vacation, but I entered a convenience store for the first time in years. I can’t stand it because I want to go to the bathroom so much. It must have been on the way home from work (advertising shooting). I want to go to the bathroom, but there was nothing in the countryside. I thought I had no choice but to rent a bathroom, so I went to the convenience store to buy something, but I missed it so much. It felt like coming to my parents’ house.”

“It’s a convenience store in the countryside, but there were no customers in the store, so I enjoyed the convenience store for a while. What is the feeling of that nostalgic hometown? I was so happy and excited. A convenience store is an exciting place.”

“It’s nice to have everything in that small space. I forgot what I bought at the time, but I was more than happy to be able to immerse myself in the atmosphere of a convenience store for the first time in years. Even in the US, there are convenience stores next to gas stations, so I go there occasionally, but I don’t feel thrilled at all.” He added, “As expected, I think it is difficult to enter in Japan without knowing it.”
