KenKen- Kenichi Sakamoto 坂本賢一

Born in Hino City, Tokyo

  • Worked for 10 years at Imperial Hotel Cooking Department
  • Retired after being seconded to the official residence of the Permanent Mission of Japan to Geneva
  • Enrolled in Kiryu’s long-established restaurant “Funbeck Suzuki” for 3 years
  • Operated the French restaurant “Petit finbec” in my hometown of Takahatafudo for 17 years.

I am always thinking about making people feel warm with the charm of food.
I aim to share what I think is delicious with our guests, use seasonal ingredients that are available at that time, and use my knowledge and skills to create an inexpensive, high-class dish
I speak basic English, French and German. welcome foreign guests.
