Yamazato’s history spans more than a half century, beginning with the opening of its first location at Hotel Okura Tokyo in 1962. Over the years, Yamazato has become highly regarded for its authentic Japanese cuisine tailored to international guests.
The first Yamazato restaurant outside Japan opened at Hotel Okura Amsterdam in 1971. The widely-loved venue has brought together Japanese and European culture. In 2002, the restaurant proudly became the first Japanese restaurant in Europe to earn a Michelin star.
Following Amsterdam, additional Yamazato venues have since opened in Shanghai, Macau, Bangkok, Taipei and now Manila. To continue bringing Japanese hospitality and cuisine overseas, Yamazato plans to unveil more restaurants in new Okura brand properties opening outside Japan.
