I arrived in Japan almost 19 years ago as a student and fell in love with the culture and beauty of the country. Over the next 18 years I found myself coming back to Japan frequently and finally decided to move to Japan fulltime to assume the role of the Resident Director for the Japan Center for Michigan Universities. I enjoy cycling around Japan, especially around Lake Biwa.

A restaurant directly operated by Matsukiya, the long-standing company responsible for spreading the name of Omi Beef across Japan during the start of the Meiji period (1868-1912). The menu includes a variety of Omi Beef dishes, including steak, as well as full-course set meals.
