From his varied career, he creates his own innovative dishes mixing with Japanese food, French food, Spanish food and Scandinavian food. From his thoughts that “Japanese foodstuff is the best in Japan. Even if I cook French in Japan, it is the only imitation of French.” He takes seriously about using foodstuffs and seasoning that is made in Japan, he orders ingredients from all over Japan to use them. However he does not emphasize “Japan” strongly, he provides dishes by using traditional cooking methods and Japanese ingredients with multinational career technique.
The menu covering mainly lunch and dinner course shows only the ingredients like “Shinsyu salmon from Nagano prefecture”, “Pike conger from Aichi prefecture”, and this makes it impossible to imagine how dishes are by just reading it. Dishes are simple, but once you taste it, you can feel deep into the seasons of Japan.
