After working at various famous Japanese restaurants in Kyoto and the surrounding region, Mr. Urimori began working at La Bombance in Tokyo in 2006. In 2019 he was chosen by Mr. Okamoto to be chief chef of La Bombance Gion. “It is unusual for a Japanese restaurant in Tokyo to open a restaurant in Kyoto,” said Mr. Okamoto. “Mr. Urimori understands La Bombance cuisine and knows a lot about Kyoto, which will help us meet this challenge.”
