The meaning of existence,“Culinary Director”


  “Culinary” means everything about “Eating”, however our scope of activity is not only  in the things about “Eating”. We believe we can find so much more chances to realize the importance of eating/drinking in every single moments in our lifetime . That is not only can found in the field of “Eating”.

  With the philosophy, Our company’s CEO, Atsushi Nakahigashi started “One Rice One Soup (一飯一汁)Project “ in 2015, June.


  There is the name “瑞穂国” , it is the eulogistic name of japan means “The land blessed with beautiful rice fields , waving with the wind”. We think that is the Root of Japanese Soul and Spirit,“そ”,and the life work of the people called “Japanese”.


  We, One Rice One Soup, inc, established in 2016 in Brooklyn, New York. We take “飯(Rice)” as a important factor of being as Japanese and put it on to the main theme of our activities. The simple but ultimate setting of rice and soup.Through the ultimately simple setting, “素(Origin)” of Japanese way of thinking about “Eating”, we will spread out the idea by doing restaurant creation, development of product and human resources , pop-up events, marketing research, planning of recipe, and regional revival project. It’s all about “Human・Thing・Object”.

Our team’s activity changes in every moment, at the same speed of innovation among international culinary world, to create much more valuable result.


  Recently, the development in the field of information technology making it closer the distance between each countries. In the movement, Japanese culture touched various kinds of cultures and experienced big revolution drastically. Sometimes it turned out as a good changes but in some points, it’s not. Through the changes Japanese people forgot the fascination of Japanese traditional foods like rice, drinks like Green tea and Sake. As we said, our activities changes in every moment. However, we’d like to keep focusing on the universal and essential theme “Human・Thing・Object” and “Eating and Drinking”. We strongly believe “Culinary Director” can connect the things and things to make bright future in the field of Gastronomy.
