(To Mr. Kobayashi) You have a spice factory? Do you export or import?

Mr. Kobayashi: We do both.

Sri Chinmoy: Where do you import from?

Mr. Kobayashi: Since the climate of Japan is not warm enough to grow them, we import the raw materials for curry from Southeast Asia-especially peppers. We import the raw goods and then ship the finished product to foreign countries.

Sri Chinmoy: Which are the foreign countries?

Mr. Kobayashi: Europe and America. Hawaii in particular has many Japanese descendents. We also ship the finished product back to the Southeast Asian countries.
