My name is Taka. I am the owner of TAKA, Japanese restaurant in Buckhead, Atlanta, USA.
I opened this small place in 2002.
Restaurant business is drama without script. It is fun and stress. But the word of "Thank you. It was delicious." is everything. It is encouragement, reward, vitamin for tomorrow. I write my everyday's drama here.
Thanks for all.

Fish supply is already Holiday mode. Please don’t expect
for tuna. I just received small big eye tuna with no toro. No idea for this
weekend but sounds like very negative.
Everybody goes home for Thanksgiving Day and eat turkey.
Tuna is out of field.
But Japanese fish is coming tomorrow. We don’t have
Thanksgiving in Japan, as you know.
We will be closed from November 18 to 22. Our business is
back on 23rd dinner operation. We opened Black Friday lunch last
year and very bad. So, I decided to close lunch on that day. I will go to
Hawaii for my friend’s wedding ceremony. I only stay in Hawaii 72 hours.
And we will be closed from December 23rd to 25th.
I will stay in town and renovate sushi bar. I will enjoy this carpenter works.

population-based cohort study involving 1,810 adults aged 75 or older.
Participants were followed up for 18 years.
found that 91.8 percent of participants died during follow-up and that half the
participants lived longer than 90 years. Compared with non-smokers, half of the
current smokers died 1.0 year earlier. Physical activity was the leisure
activity that correlated most strongly with survival. For participants who
regularly walked, swam, or did gymnastics, the median age at death was 2.0
years greater than those who did not engage in physical activity. Individuals
with a low-risk profile (healthy lifestyle behavior, participation in at least
one leisure activity, rich or moderate social network) had a 5.4-year longer
median survival than those with a high-risk profile. Even for the oldest old
(aged 85 years or older), a low-risk profile was linked with a four-year higher
median age of death than a high-risk profile.

at advanced ages may enhance life expectancy, probably by reducing
