Mitsuru Tsukada

Born 1974 in Saitama, Japan. Mitsuru Tsukada spent his school days in an international environment and went to London to learn English.

While attending culinary school there, he decided to become a chef abroad with a strong passion for spreading Japanese cuisine to the world. After three years of training at a restaurant in Kumamoto Japan, he moved back to the UK.

He started his career under the world-renowned Japanese chef Nobuyuki Matsuhisa, and successfully held the positions of sous chef and chef de cuisine at Nobu London and Matsuhisa Athénée. 

He also created a buzz at Matsuhisa Paris with a limited-time promotion, paving the way for the opening of the current restaurant.

In 2013, he moved to Geneva, Switzerland, to help launch the Japanese restaurant at the five-star Four Seasons Hotel.

In October 2022, he opened the restaurant Sachi at the Mandarin Oriental Geneva.
He is currently developing a consulting business to build bridges between foreign chefs interested in Japanese cuisine and Japanese chefs who aspire to work abroad.

Language spoken: English.
