Daria Reshetniak, 19, works at the Ukrainian restaurant Babusya Rey in Musashino, Tokyo, on Feb. 12, 2023. Originally from Dnipro in eastern Ukraine, Reshetniak came to Japan last May and has been attending International Christian University while working part-time at the restaurant on weekends. Nicknamed "Dasha" by the owner of the restaurant and others, Reshetniak does everything from taking orders to handling the bill in fluent Japanese. She said, "I want to use the money I earn not only for my living expenses, but also to travel around Japan and learn about its culture." (Mainichi/Kaho Kitayama)
