The open sea. Fluttering leaves. Crisp, clean air and a cloudless blue sky.

The foundation of my cuisine lies in delicious memories of spending time in the countryside as a child. Those days were filled with the happiness that comes from sharing food with family and friends, along with a deep gratitude for nature.

At NéMo, we want to create a relaxed and comfortable space where people can share meaningful moments with their loved ones. Aiming to convey the passion of our producers as well as our team, we invite diners to savor the blessings of nature and the best of Japan’s four seasons through experiences that engage the five senses. We strive to express our ideas with a balance of boldness and sensitivity.

We hope that our guests will make many delicious memories with us.

Thanks to the influence of his grandfather, an avid fisher, Kenichi Nemoto came to appreciate the bounty of nature – and seafood in particular – at an early age. Motivated by a desire to share his delight in the deliciousness of food and life itself, he aspired to become a chef. After gaining experience in France and Japan, he refined his skills at three-Michelin-starred Quintessence before striking out on his own.
In June 2021, he opened NéMo in Tokyo’s Minami-Aoyama district.
