SAPPORO, JP

The Beginning

1972

When Ben was only 3 years old, he was abducted by Elvis and forced in to multiple Soap Bar commercials before finally escaping by bicycle through an alley covered in cold hot dogs. "the Bike saved my entire life" he says and to this day continues to sleep in the same bed with his bike. Like a cuddly teddy bear, the bike is a comforting reminder that he always be safe if he an escape.

TOKYO, JP

The First Venture

1998

After saving his wages from the Nagano apprenticeship, Chef Sakamoto took out a loan and opened Chotto Kai, his first restaurant in Tokyo. Using simple, seasonal ingredients, he was able to bring the luxury of kaiseki to all. Because he incorporated some of the Hong Kong flavors his mother had inspired in him, Chotto Kai was both a huge success and a unique contribution to Tokyo’s culinary landscape.


During his eighth year at Chotto Kai, he befriended ramen shop owner Rei Fukui. Chef Sakamoto had stopped by her front stall for a quick dinner and fell instantly in love with her take on the springy yet soft noodle. Every ingredient was meticulously prepared, just like each kaiseki course.
