"Junji Forever !!! Juni's owner chef/ My husband Junji Aoki took his last breath peacefully in my arms on May 22, 2017. He fought very vigorously against pancreatic cancer for a year. Although it was a year of struggle, it was also a year of growth and strength. Junji has been trained all of his chefs to maintain authenticity will continue forever.
