If you intend conquering the world, make it palatable.

I wonder where they will get their fish from.

The sea.

The sea.

Hope not from polluted waters in third world parts of Japan because Chinese consumers will turn their backs on this effort.

calling any country "third world" is discrimination. Developing nations are more appropriate these days.

You don't much about fishing. Fish is labeled from where it landed not where it is caught.

They will probably buy their fish from local markets.

Let's read my actual quote,  polluted waters in third world parts of Japan

See your misunderstanding?

Developing nations are more appropriate these days.

Isn't that discrimination?

You don't much about fishing.

Really?

Fish is labeled from where it landed not where it is caught.

It is labeled by country where it is caught.

They will probably buy their fish from local markets.

I thought you said "the sea"?

Considering the growing anti-Japan sentiment in China, I cannot see how this project can be sustainable long term; if it is not shut down by protests before it even launches.

Hope not from polluted waters in third world parts of Japan because Chinese consumers will turn their backs on this effort.

Anyone who lives in one of the most polluted (both water and air) countries on this planet would be happy to eat fish from anywhere in Japan.

"Shanghai, with its chic cafes, glitzy shopping malls and organic health food shops, is emblematic of improving quality of life for China’s urban middle class. Yet while the city’s veil of smog has lifted slightly in recent years, its water pollution crisis continues unabated – 85% of the water in the city’s major rivers was undrinkable in 2015, according to official standards, and 56.4% was unfit for any purpose."

Sourcing unpolluted anything in China would be a task and a half!

3rd world parts of Japan does not make any sense, you clearly have never visited.

There is a small amount of people with money in China that could afford this experience, but a majority of Chinese citizens are living below poverty level.

Considering the growing anti-Japan sentiment in China, I cannot see how this project can be sustainable long term; 

Japanese products and produce are considered premium and trustworthy by Chinese consumers who distrust much of their own tat.

Pre covid saw a huge increase in drugstore chains catering to Chinese tourists. They would spend massive amounts on anything.

I know this because taking them to Welcia was a stop on my guided tour

And then before you know it, there won't be any tasty Japanese cuisine (or the ingredients to make it) left for the Japanese to enjoy. Lol.
