With my staff

I was born in Shinagawa, Tokyo on 10th of August, 1947.
1973, I chose a culinary career to be a cook because it has been my dream since I was small. I started to work for a Czechoslovakian restaurant in Roppongi, Tokyo. And later, with the managerfs recommendation, I took a ship from Yokohama harbor through Russia to Frankfurt, Germany, to work at the Steigenberger Frankfurter Hof as a cook apprentice. I learned various European cuisine and cooking styles through the following places.

* Worked at the Steigenberger Park Hotel in Dusseldorf for a year and a half, * German dishes,
* Worked at the Hotel Atlanta in Brussels, Belgium for one year.
* Worked at Sheraton Hotel in Brussels for a half year,
* Worked at Monte Carlo Sporting Club of Hotel de Paris in Monaco for three months.

As I studied the variety of European cuisine, I returned to Japan on October 1977, but I took off for Switzerland to take further cooking training, February 1978. Then, I started my career as a Chef at the Switzerland restaurant MOVENPICK opened first time in Japan, November, 1979.

Later, I transferred to American Club in Tokyo as a position chef and worked there for two years. 1983, I opened a small restaurant in Setagaya Ward. Menu written in Japanese, English, Germany and French is favored by foreigners. One of my customers, an executive officer of OAG Haus, German Culture Center, advised me to open a restaurant in the OAG Haus. As the result, I opened a restaurant, OAG Club Restaurant Krisel in OAG, Akasaka Tokyo. August 1987.

The president and executive officers of Daimler-Chrysler Japan Co,. who often came to there encouraged me to open a restaurant in Roppongi First Building where the headquarters of the company locates. July 1994, I decided to open the second restaurant, Zum Einhorn, in Roppongi First Building with a great support from Daimler-Chrysler.
