While interacting with students through a position as an instructor at a private high school, Tokiyama began to think about the relationship between food and people. The character of Japanese cuisine is best symbolized by Odashi, a soup stock made from fish and kelp. In hopes of rebuilding the crumbing food culture of Japan, she established a blog called the "Odashi Project". Documented on her blog, she travels anywhere and everywhere to talk to people about the importance of eating habits.
