Finding good-quality Japanese cuisine in the capital is, mercifully for fans of super-fresh sushi, no longer the battle it once was. London’s love of what has perhaps become Japan’s greatest culinary export is down in no small part to Tak Tokumine, who arrived in the city in the Seventies and promptly set about delivering a little slice of Japan to a nation that believed that a Babycham and a mushroom vol-au-vent was the height of sophistication.
