He is always smiling, and polite.

I can see the fatigue in his face, but it's clear that he's one of those people that magically summons energy from sheer the passion he has for his work.

Hes right; to train people to be you is just impossible. He is so driven and motivated its inspiring. People like him make me want to do more.

The way they keep their kitchen clean is so impressive

I love how he smiled the whole time he was being interviewed. You kinda sense that he is a kind person. If I am given a chance to fly to Japan I would definitely visit his restaurant.

That’s what we called a “Passion” not only a hard work and dedication but has a passion on what he is doing. Just notice of his every answer plus the smile he put on period

Jheez, washing dishes at a restaurant is already stressful enough as it is. This guy opens the shop, preps, cooks, washes the dishes, cleans, does the laundry, closes the shop AND does the food orders at closing? I have so much respect for this man.

"There's nothing I don't like." You can see how tired he is, yet he always smiles. If everyone had that work ethic, all businesses would be much better

Although I met many Kunimotos while living in Japan; after many years I realized that actually very few people in the whole wide world work as hard a the Japanese from whom I learned so much! Mina San domo Arigato Gozaimasu! Oki ni!!!

Much respect for this young man. A lot of hard work pays off for those who have a dream and compassion for what they do in life.
This production's value is so good. The editing. The interviews. The presentation. Well done, LWIF!
