Dining at Gonpachi is an exceptional experience you won’t forget. “Gonpachi”, which has been visited by the US President amongst many others, is world-renowned for being the model of the action scene of Quentin Tarantino’s “Kill Bill Vol. 1” movie. Excited? Well, let’s step inside!

“Gonpachi” resembles a traditional Japanese-style warehouse. It’s huge! Inside the restaurant, you feel like being on the set for “Kill Bill”, which is actually not strange at all. The reason for that is because the restaurant “House of Blue Leaves” set with the spectacular fighting scene in the popular movie “Kill Bill Vol. 1”, is actually inspired by the atmosphere of “Gonpachi”!

I was born and raised in Kiel/Germany. When I was 16 I came to Japan for the first time. I fell in love with this beautiful country, so I returned after my university graduation. Since then, I have been living in Tokyo - and I don't plan to change anything about that ;-) My hobbies are taking a stroll around the city, taking photos and drinking coffee.
