Authentic Japanese sushi and yakitori izakaya with huge variety of sake.

Kazu Fukumoto was born in the northern shore of Japan’s Kyushu Island, Fukuoka. In 1999, he began his culinary career starting as a dishwasher at Musashino Sushi Dokoro and worked his way up to become a sushi chef under the apprenticeship of the owner and chef - Smokey Fuse.

He continued to hone his skills for 10 years as Head Sushi Chef at Musashino. After departing from Musashino, Kazu traveled back to Japan to study traditional yakitori at Hiroya Yakitori in Tokyo.

In September 2015, all his hard work paid off when he opened Fukumoto: Sushi & Yakitori Izakaya, serving up traditional Japanese cuisine in a casual gastropub setting. He loves to share his passion for food with everyone around him and continues to do so with his evolving menu.
