Funnily enough, I randomly met him once when I used to work an office job. One of my duties was to pre-screen clients. There was a standard set of questions we went through and one of them was, “Are you [insert name on application]?” When I asked Hidekazu, he answered, in a very affirmative voice, “I’m Tojo!” I was kind of confused because the way he said it implied that I should have known who he was – and the thing is, I did because in a strange twist of fate, I had eaten at his restaurant a week or two earlier – but as a random office worker, how would I know? Maybe I was misinterpreting. Anyway, his claim to fame is that he invented the California roll.
