Hideo was born in Tokyo in 1944. His father owned several restaurants and he began training there, learning the principles of sushi and kappou-ryori food preparation, cooking and presentation that had been passed down through many generations of his family. In keeping with a classical training, he also learnt the philosophy of the tea ceremony cuisine (Chakaiseki), calligraphy, flower arranging and the cooking knife's ceremony at the Shijyoushinryuu School from Master Teacher Shishikura Soken.
