From the chef
He strives to carry on the importance of traditional Kyoto-style cuisine to the next generation
He was born in November of 1961 and grew up in Kyoto. Using the inspiration of his father and grandfather, he set out on a culinary career to inherit his family’s legacy. He started his career by working at a chain of restaurants across the country from Tokyo to Hiroshima, which means his culinary knowledge extends to both the Kanto region and Kansai region. Presently, he serves as a head chef at "Arashiyama Kumahiko", where he stimulates the five senses of his guests with traditional Kyoto-style cuisine. He works hard every day to preserve the traditions of the Tankuma Kitamise restaurant group and carry them on to future generations.
