Yoshi’s Message to students:

I realized Japanese cuisine is really wonderful. As I spent much time in foreign countries, I had lots of chances to consider about Japanese cuisine’s magnificence and profoundness. I focus on my approach of teaching students according to each student’s characters.  There is no time like the present. Anyway, let’s try than be worried.
