GENTEM CAFÉ NISEKO, Kabayama, Tetsuya Akimoto

By 16th December 2010 August 27th, 2013 Uncategorized

AFTER moving to Tokyo post high school and playing in indie bands at clubs and pubs for 7 years, Tetsuya Akimoto realised everything he needed was in his home state of Hokkaido.

Tetsuya has had many jobs whilst living in Niseko, from housekeeping and washing dishes to jobs as a raft guide and a fishing guide. From this year, Tatsuya will be the owner of Gentem Café Niseko. He will offer a Japanese fusion style menu and use ingredients from local farms and sometimes deer from a local hunter.

He loves Niseko and hopes to leave the nature and Japanese culture to the next generations (he has three children) and for the people that come from overseas.
