About the Author

Shinzo Satomi (1937-2002) is the pen-name used by Atsushi Naitoh for his gourmet writing. A columnist for Japan's leading monthly magazine Bungei Shunjuu (the TIME Magazine of Japan), Satomi covered the food and dining beat for the magazine for decades. He is considered amongst gourmads to be the father of Japan's B-Class Gourmet boom of the 90's, which developed after Japan's economic bubble burst in the late 80's. His "BEST OF-" series of essays were trend-setting and king making for those establishments that found themselves detailed with his passionate words. After leaving the magazine Satomi continued to write, but would turn his focus towards research working for Gifu University's Hosplitality Management Department.
