His first job was at a busy Izakaya-style franchise restaurant in Gunma-ken, Japan where he worked as a chef. In 2009, Shimpei and his brother opened their first restaurant “imari” in the same building where their late grandmother also ran her own Genghis Khan restaurant in the 70s. Shimpei has experience in establishing yakitori, izakaya, kaiseki, oyster bar, burger, and steakhouse restaurants as well as bars. He is fluent in Japanese and is well versed in the business culture of Japan.

After graduating from Florida Coastal School of Law with J.D., Shimpei provided legal assistance on a contractual basis to top law firms in NYC for antitrust litigations involving Japanese corporations.
