Hideo’s latest musing touches on his many memorable jobs before setting himself as a video game’auteur’ and birthing a run of acclaimed titles. Kojima recounts his first job filming wedding ceremonies along with also a stint as a part-time live-in gardener.
Physically emptying, the gardening project taught him some valuable life adventures, especially, due to an episode where he was stung by ten bees simultaneously and yet another where he fell ill with lacquer poisoning.

Kojima explains that during his time as a gardener, his employer stressed that he must never decline clients’ offerings, if that be food or drink, to demonstrate the necessary level of respect.
Kojima’s strict adherence to the spirit of’omotenashi’ hospitality led to an unfortunate incident in which he chugged a little too much client-offered beer and glancing down by a tree. Another example watched the Kojima Productions founder throw his packed lunch when a client offered him a meal.
As Kojima explains, these encounters were formative:
Whether as a wedding cinematographer or live-in gardener, these part-time jobs helped educate me the soul of’omotenashi’ hospitality — the soul of how to please clients. I believe this soul helps me now, I do.
