A year ago we were in full preparation for the opening of Bondiya. I can’t believe a year goes by so fast.

In March 2010 we found the current location and it was very different from what it is now. Before us there was a sushi restaurant established in our location, and the owner moved to Tokyo to start a restaurant there. Still we sometimes have his customers coming in asking what happend.

The first thing we did was removing all the wallpaper, flooring and ceiling. We reorganised the layout, Eriko’s father did all the carpenters work, and then it was time to put in new flooring, ceiling and wallpaper. We finished with the walls, covering them in a sort of clay material, and painting the woodwork. When this was all finished, we had to go shopping for furniture, kitchen stuff, plates, glasses, etc,etc. and putting everything in it’s right place. After the final cleaning, it was time for the menu test cooking. We had 2 dinner and a lunch pre open test, and after this we realised we still had quite a lot to do. After that, 2 final days off, to spend some time with the kids and then it was opening time. Saturday June 5th, loads of flowers and presents arrived in the morning from all our friends and relatives. That was great.

I was very surprised when later in the evening I stepped outside for a minute and realized all flowers were stolen. I went in panic to Eriko, but she explained that it is custom in Japan that opening day flowers are free to take for anyone. It brings good luck.

Opening night was still the busiest day so far, with 67 guests.

Now, 1 year later, it looks like yesterday, but so many things happened in between. The first 3 weeks I can’t even remember. The Worldcup soccer, obon,ITV, bonenkai, Christmas, osechi, New Year, Golden week. All the birthdays, private parties. Most of my old Y’s students dropped by. Eriko’s old friends and co-workers. All the other restaurant/bar owners in Ise. And we made so many new friends. Thank you all for our first fantastic year. We hope to see you again in our second year at Bondiya.
