3313 N Broadway St
Chicago, IL 60657 Lakeview Rate and review


Kai Togami became an orphan when a tsunami washed his remote fishing village into the sea off the coast of Okinawa in 1963.

When the Red Cross ships arrived with international aid, he was hungry for more than just food. He made up his mind to leave what little remained in search of a new beginning. That night with his eyes set on the horizons ahead of him, he snuck aboard as a stowaway. His nearly 30 year journey on the high seas and far off edges of the world was not easy but it was what made him. Shaped by courage, determination, unimaginable love and bittersweet loss, he was a restless boy who raised himself into a man of adventure.

Today, Mr. Togami lives in the neighborhood and still owns and captains this restaurant which is inspired by his travels. He enjoys photography and sailing on his days off.
