From the chef

He decided to become a chef when he discovered the joy of customer service while helping out at his mother's restaurant

Gotemba Eki Chikaku Unagi no Hirota_Tamotsu Hirota

He was born in Shizuoka Prefecture in 1947. He aspired to become a chef when he started helping out at his mother's restaurant during his university years and discovered the joy of entertaining customers with food and drink. When his older brother took over his mother's restaurant, he went on to train at a long-established eel shop belonging to one of his relatives. After completing his training roughly 35 years ago, he opened his own restaurant in Gotemba called [Unagi no Hirota.] There, he has carefully preserved the secret sauce and techniques passed down since the Meiji Era, which he inherited from his place of training, and serves delicious eel dishes to customers on a daily basis with his naturally friendly smile.
