TOKYO, Feb. 8 – Kasumi Ishikawa, a professional table tennis player and a member of the table tennis club of National Federation of Agricultural Cooperative Associations (ZEN-NOH), visited the ZEN-NOH office in Otemachi, Tokyo, on February 7 to update her activities. “I enjoy eating rice after the games overseas,” she said while speaking about what she eats before the games and while traveling overseas.
Ishikawa also added that she always bring a rice cooker with her when she goes abroad to play games and that she pays attention to eating a lot of well-balanced food after the games as she loses weight from playing hard. “I’m thankful to ZEN-NOH for offering me rice so that I can eat them overseas. Always eating rice, even while I’m not in Japan, gives me the strength to go all out to win the games,” she noted. “I want to show the best performance at the world championship,” she expressed her commitment.
