Graduated from culinary school
Worked for a major Japanese restaurant as chef
After 1 year, worked for Ryokan Izu

After that, worked for chicken specialized restaurant for 8 years
Learned about management while working as shop master

Worked as area manager for Tonkatsu Dining then joined in Monogatari Corporation.

- Reason why you choose the path of culinary?
I have always dreamed of becoming a chef someday since I was still in middle school.
My house is very near to Hakeijima beach so I often went fishing with my father when I was a kid. Since that time, I have understood the joy in preparing food.
All the fishes I got are cooked by me and my family were very happy eating my dishes.
That's when I decided to follow the path of culinary.



- Please talk about good points of Monogatari Corporation
The Restaurant industry is indeed, very tough.
It has been many years since I take my career seriously and when I take a stop to look back, I always ask myself if I truly enjoy what I'm doing.

Of course, this is not about job's satisfaction or not.

I totally understand the joy of developing something from zero. Yet, the current me always think of sale and profit.

It feels different from when I was still young and passionate.

It's hard to tell this kind of thing to a company but Monogatari Corporation is just the right place where you can speak out.

Right after I joined in Monogatari Corporation, I was put in the brand new store "Yuzu An". Start from making menu, building the shop's foundation to how to make customers happy everyday, the shop has been franchised up to 50 branches.

When i want to do something, if I can state the reasons and where to start, the company will receive my idea passionately.

I think Monogatari Corporation is the company where people of the same determination come together.




- Advices to those who are planning to apply to Monogatari Corporation
Monogatari Corporation always takes care of its employee despite of their position or department.

Who they are
What they are good at
What they are not good at
Company, department, or stores always try to understand its employee like that.

Thanks to that, employees are more open to share their thoughts.

I have also spent a lot of time to talk with staffs. There was this one staff who told me he wanted to change himself but didn't know how to. Eventhough it's difficult, I started making a more flexible working environment since then.
Of course, there was failure too but by learning from failures, we were able to change.

"Never repeat the same mistake twice"
We use this motto for our future advancement.

And why do I do that? Well, because I was also been in that situation.
