Since he was young, Chef Otsuka had a passion for cooking. He would accompany his mom as they sold yakitori in their neighborhood.

He went to the Philippines when he was 24 years old and worked at a Japanese restaurant.

Throughout his nearly four-decade career in Japanese cuisine, Chef Otsuka has upheld the highest culinary standards.

He is known for putting great attention to detail in every dish he served, from the ramen broth to a sashimi slice. His goal was to see satisfied smiles on his customers’ faces.

Passion, perfection, and customer satisfaction - these are the legacies of Chef Otsuka, which the Hanakazu family will continue upholding.
