Tohoku University: The Return of the 100 yen Breakfast!

Tohoku University, in partnership with Co-op, will once again be offering an affordable breakfast promotion from June 14 – 18. This is to support students who might be struggling financially due to the on-going COVID-19 pandemic, especially those who have lost their part time jobs.

For 100 yen, students can have a cooked breakfast at Kawauchi no Mori Dining, or takeaway a bento. The menu this time features the famous “Sangen Pork” donated by Hayashi Farm Co. Ltd. and Gunma Meat Co. Ltd. The presidents of the two Gunma-based companies are Tohoku University alumni.

“When I was a student in Sendai, my seniors bought me many meals,” said Atsushi Hayashi, president of Hayashi Farm Co. Ltd. “I was told ‘The benefits you receive from your seniors, you don’t have to return to them. Instead, take care of your juniors.’ Since pork is a source of energy and health, we want to send some to current Tohoku University students.”

“Breakfast is important, so please eat well!” added Gunma Meat Co., Ltd. president Shigeru Soyano.
