In 2001, he began a consulting business specializing in ramen, opening new ramen stores and rebuilding unprofitable ones. This activity was picked up by the mass media and led to the creation of the name “ramen producer”. Currently, he teaches at ramen schools in Tokyo, Yokohama, and Osaka, where he provides complete individualized instruction. He has trained more than 1,200 students in Japan and abroad. He has written numerous books on the subject and has made a media appearance.
What he values in undertaking lecturer at the Japanese Restaurant Academy

Message to those who are thinking about joining the school
The ramen industry has an extremely high closure rate after opening a business compared to other food and beverage industries. One of the reasons for this is that many people enter the industry with easygoing ideas. Today, various ramen recipes can be found on the Internet and can be learned independently. But because of that, it is difficult to become a thriving ramen restaurant only with ramen-making skills. In this course, lessons will be conducted with an emphasis on how to survive as a ramen restaurant, not only domestically but also with oversight of overseas expansion. In the area of cooking techniques, each participant will develop the skills to create their product. In terms of management, by case-studying an actual ramen restaurant that closed, participants will learn from the essence of that failure the thinking and methodology necessary for the future management of ramen restaurants.
