Chef Kenichiro Okada opens “Okada Mae” in Azabujuban!
After half a lifetime filled with incredible ups and downs, he’s opened a new restaurant. There is something deeply moving about this.
Our generation has been at the mercy of the times. We entered society during Japan’s bubble economy, debuting with incredible speed and enthusiasm.
The here and now is what has followed from a roller coaster of repeated successes and failures. Many people disappeared due to economic failures. The common trait shared by those who, like Mr. Okada, continue to shine on is, I think, a “mature kindness.” Only a professional who understands the pain in peoples’ hearts is capable of having this.
