I open the curtains first thing in the morning, look over at Sakurajima and promise I’ll do my very best for the people I’ll meet that day. Sakurajima has amazing energy.
Raku Raku Tei is right between the two statues of Shimadzu Nariakira and Saigo Takamori. Someone I know once told me this location would only be successful if someone with a real samurai spirit ran a business here.
I decided to provide all you can eat Japanese pickles for our customers, and spent years perfecting the recipe to make them.
I got so into making them that I hurt my fingers from repeating the process over and over again. Look how bent my fingers are! That’s how much I think about making our customers happy.
