Each country has its own culture. Due to the uniqueness, it’s sometimes difficult for foreigners to understand some parts, especially foods.
It is said that most of Asian people cannot eat licuorice – which is black color candy eaten in Scandinavian countries. They commonly describe it as disgusting.
In this performance Tsuchimoto attempted to eat full-course of licuorice, which was extremely difficult for her, served by a Swedish waiter.
She tried to taste them with knife and fork, and even a pair of chopsticks. Ultimately, she realised that it is impossible to finish the meal, so she left the room in defeat.
