Fujimoto’s Japanese restaurant in Pyongyang remains open, sushi chef spotted

Despite reports, diner at "Takahashi" says chef still working in capital

Sushi chef Kenji Fujimoto’s restaurant in Pyongyang is still open for business, multiple diners who ate there recently told NK News, despite Japanese media claims it had closed in June.

Furthermore, Fujimoto was spotted serving clients at the "Takahashi" restaurant, one recent diner said, suggesting reports that claim Fujimoto has been detained or is missing are inaccurate.
