Hideo Kojima has actually charged himself with answering one question a day for as long as possible. Topics so far have actually ranged from actors and creators currently on his radar to the touches of humor and daily realism found in his games, significantly Death Stranding. Unsurprisingly, they are as fascinating as the video games Kojima makes.
Hideo’s newest musing touches on his most memorable jobs prior to establishing himself as a video game ‘auteur’ and birthing a series of well-known titles. Kojima states his first job filming wedding and a stint as a part-time live-in garden enthusiast.
Physically draining pipes, the gardening task taught him some important life experiences, significantly, thanks to an episode where he was stung by a minimum of 10 bees simultaneously and another where he fell ill with lacquer poisoning.
Hideo Kojima Falls From a Tree
Kojima discusses that during his time as a gardener, his employer worried that he needs to never decrease customers’ offerings, whether that be food or beverage, to show the needed level of respect.
Kojima’s stringent adherence to the spirit of ‘omotenashi’ hospitality caused a regrettable incident where he chugged a little excessive client-offered beer and tumbled down from a tree. Another instance saw the Kojima Productions creator toss out his jam-packed lunch when a customer used him a meal.
As Kojima discusses, these experiences were developmental:
Whether as a wedding event cinematographer or live-in garden enthusiast, these part-time tasks helped teach me the spirit of ‘omotenashi’ hospitality– the spirit of how to please clients. I believe that this spirit assists me in the video game development that I do today.
Long might the musings they continue. Let’s see what Hideo Kojima creates next.
