An exclusive video interview with famous chef Yoshiaki Takazawa, from Takazawa in Tokyo, Japan: the restaurant, opened in 2005 and renovated in 2012, is known to have only ten seats.
In this video the Japanese chef explains to Fine Dining Lovers why he decided to recreate the ambience of the japanese tea ceremony, according to the perfect Japanese hospitality. He also describes how the Japanese fine dining scene is changing, affecting the way young chefs ask for local ingredients rather than Italian or French ones.
