Tokuji Munetsugu is a founder of Curry chain restaurants, Coco Ichibanya. The Company was founded in 1978 in Nagoya, has been the most famous Curry restaurant chain in Japan.
Munetsugu was born in Ishikawa, but he didn’t know his parents and he was in an orphan in Hyogo until he was three years old. After that, Munetsugu was adopted in Nagoya, however, Munetsugu’s poor life didn’t change because his stepfather didn’t have any steady jobs for a long time. Munetsugu and his stepfather got only a little money by collecting garbage and sold them as their means for living. Munetsugu began to live with his stepmother again after his stepfather died when he was 15 and Munetsugu’s hardship still continued until he graduated from school and got to work after all.
Munetsugu’s life had gradually changed when he got married to his wife, Naomi in 1972. After the marriage, Munetsugu and his wife started the first restaurant and called it “Buccuss” in Nagoya in 1974. They already started their real estate agency before opening “Buccuss”, but Munetsugu decided to give up the real estate job because he was more interested in the restaurant business.
In 1975, Munetsugu opened his second restaurant in the same area in Nagoya, they started to add the curry rice made by Munetsugu’s wife, Naomi to the menu. Surprisingly, the curry was getting popular and Munetsugu and his wife decided to open their own curry restaurant in Nagoya and changed the name to Curry House CoCo Ichibanya.
