Since 1972 when Tetsuko Nakato first opened the doors of Nakato Japanese Restaurant, the family has shared the magnificent culture of Japanese cuisine with Atlantans and visitors from around the world.
After Tetsuko retired, her daughter, Hiroe Nakato, along with Hiroe's husband Kiyo Takahara, not only took the reins of the restaurant, but further grew Nakato's standing as one of the premiere dining destinations in Atlanta.
Today, Sachiyo ("Sachi") Nakato Takahara runs the restaurant founded by her grandmother. Sachi was born in Atlanta and worked at Nakato from a very young age. She moved away to study art history at Boston University, and in 2004 she came back to the city and family business that she loved. Sachi mastered every aspect of the restaurant before being named general manager.
