■ Interesting food menus such as giant locusts and the world’s sweetest donuts are a big hit! SNS is a tailwind! Shinjuku Copa Bowl is located in Shinjuku and Kabukicho, so it is rare for a bowling alley to create a high-class champagne based on the idea of ​​“creating the most interesting bowling alley in Japan” and “let’s do something other companies have never done before” We are doing various projects such as introducing “Domperi”. In the midst of this situation, employees came up with ideas for new food menus, and in 2014, insect food appeared. Insects to be introduced are selected in consideration of deliciousness, safety, etc. in advance by employees tasting all insect foods. Shinjuku Copa Bowl has been reviewing its menu three times a year and previously sold a tarantula known as a giant spider, but abandoned because it could not be provided stably. In addition to the standard Thai giant locust, scorpions and turtles are offered as a special menu. Insect food has become a huge hit with a cumulative total of 30,000 meals, and sales have increased 2.5 times. [Image 2

High protein, low fat, low carbohydrate, essential amino acid content and very high specifications, not only lipid is low, but the fats contained are omega fatty acids that are easy to burn. It works to lower cholesterol and neutral fat, and is said to prevent lifestyle-related diseases such as arteriosclerosis and myocardial infarction. Also, the protein content is about 22g per 100g of beef, while crickets are about 67g per 100g. The UN recommends insect food as a nutrient source in preparation for the future food crisis. Since 2018, trade in edible insects has been liberalized in the EU. Insect food is a notable source of nutrition that has begun to be introduced seriously all over the world, beyond the interest of “Kiwamono”. We will continue to excite the entertainment industry as an “entertainment producer” and provide exciting experiences. [Image 3
