Networking Japan: The Hardships and Joys of Running a Japanese Restaurant, and its History

Time and Location

Online and Hunter College (New York, NY)


Mt Fuji is a Japanese Steakhouse, a 16,000 sq. ft. iconic restaurant, nestled on a 45 acre mountain top property, in Rockland County, NY. Yoshimasa Tada, who was born and raised in Fukuoka Japan, surrounded by mountains, naturally developed a love for nature. He attended the Nippon Sports Science University to study sports medicine and nutrition. He sought a path in teaching and earned a Masters in Sports Medicine & Nutrition, where he also was a lecturer and taught college courses. However, he was offered an opportunity to take over a multi- chain of hibachi restaurants, in the United States. Yoshi envisioned introducing the American people to more of the Japanese culture, food and hospitality, and was excited to accept the proposal. He moved to the States in 2005 and began his career in the restaurant business.
