In yet another scene featuring Western food (spaghetti), a middle-aged manners-school teacher has brought her class to a restaurant to teach these young Japanese women the secrets of Western etiquette. “Unlike the Japanese, who make a slurping noise when eating noodles, Westerners never slurp. It’s all done very quietly,” the matron says to her attentive class.

There is less formality in Japanese life today than there was in the middle of the twentieth century.

Both Tampopo the person and Tampopo the place are refurbished. The dowdy, down-home Japanese decor is replaced with a modern, bright, stainless steel and white-surface style of modernity and the West.
