Your instructors

Oki
I started my cooking career with French cuisine after graduation from high school.

I worked in Banquet/wedding palace "Taiko-en" in Osaka for five years and went to Toronto/Canada and
worked in the 3 Stars restaurant "Marcel's Bistro and Le Saint ropez" and "Markham Embassy suite hotel"



one year later, came back to Japan in 1996 and I worked in Inperial Hotel Osaka and
French restaurant in Nara.
My French career ended in 9 years and I took after my father's sushi restaurant in 1999.

Then I studied desperately in a different sushi restaurant and practiced hard at midnight and
learned a technique of sushi over and over.
It's been 18 years since I became sushi chef.

My interests
Sushi, Vegetable carving and Star Wars!!

In 2013, I participated "Euro Carving Championship 2" in Russia/Moscow then showed
my Japanese style carving.



I participated Star Wars Celebration in 2012,2015, 2017 then showed my Star Wars vegetable carving.
