Business and political leaders congregating in the ski resort of Davos took a break from rosti, raclette and other Swiss cuisine as Japanese clothing maker Uniqlo sponsored a Japanese lunch and gave the conference hall a Tokyo-style makeover.

The six-course lunch, packed neatly in a black bento box, contained: seafood and vegetable tempura, Japanese vegetables, asparagus with beef, tofu with miso, shrimp, tuna, Japanese omelet, sushi topped with fish and grilled marinated salmon.

Participants later snapped up Uniqlo’s “manga” pop culture T-shirts handed out for free, while Japanese Prime Minister Taro Aso — here on an 8-hour trip — enjoyed a photo-op with an exhibition of T-shirts with embedded video footage of modern works by Japanese artists.
