You’re an old merchant from the 18th century, Edo period, coming by boat from a far-away village to purchase the newest goods on the market in order to sell them in your region. 

The Dotonbori area is well-known all over Japan as the heaven of food: the home of all sorts of dishes and products you never thought could exist. But on your journey, a strong storm catches you on the sea. Miraculously, you survive, but when you wake up, you find yourself 300 years in the future, to the present day. 

Now, you must find a new way home, but remember that you should also take with you some of the delicious food you will find.
