About.

Bonzo is a traditional soba restaurant in Seaside Kamakura.  

Making soba by hand takes time, but I'm so happy to keep this almost-lost art alive.

 People seem to love eating my food, because I got a Michelin star, three years in a row.  I've started a small Permaculture garden, and have accommodation for my wonderful helpers and apprentices upstairs.  

Sometimes we have live music events and other parties here, and this makes my community wonderful.

I'm looking for live-in helpers, over 26 years old, who want to make their life amazing.
I can offer to teach you soba-making. You can go surfing or walking in beautiuful mountains after work, they are just a few minutes walk away. You can and enjoy all the lovely design sense of Traditional Kamakura and its charming shops too.
Im looking for tech-friendly workers to help me with my bookkeeping and on-line presence, because I don't have a good system.
Pro-active workers will help with declutter, bringing better order to the restaurant, and help to renovate and make it sparkle. Woodwork and plastering skills are a plus.
I'm not good at direction in this area, you will be my boss : )

Accommodation is upstairs, in a wooden tatami apartment. Its small, but there is internet, a cute neighbourhood, and great food. I can teach you traditional soba-making.
