Our Story

Hiroshi Tun

Hiroshi, a native of Burma, went to study in Japan in his late teens and was introduced in traditional food while he was working part time in an izakaya. Since then, he developed his passion for learning all he could about the Japanese cuisine. As he developed his skills, he was then promoted to becoming a full time sushi chef. He moved to the US in late 90's and worked in one of the busiest sushi restaurants in San Francisco frequented by Japanese celebrities and local foodies. Hiroshi always try to balance tradition and trend to his cuisines and hoped to introduce a new Japanese food experience to our community.

How the name Tozai came up?

Hiroshi used to live on the east of Tokyo Metro Tozai line and his wife Angela lived on the west side of the tracks. The subway line symbolizes how they were already connected even before they met and that's how they came up with the name Tozai which also loosely translates to east meets west.
