Culinary Director of Notsu Ryokan

Recently, seasonal patterns slightly differs from that it used to be due to climate changes. So I aim to choose the freshest ingredients produced in the town without being constrained by the fixed idea of seasonal best. Another continued effort as Culinary Director is to keep challenging together with my staff members to create something new with a slogan “Offering safe and secure foods comes before everything. Always keep this rule in mind, and values for customers are created when they share our philosophy.”
