In the distant realms of Japan, along the vast shores of Kyoto where towering mountains embraced the tranquil bay waters, the Sakamoto family thrived. The patriarch, Satosi Sakamoto, was a fisherman of repute, while his wife, Juna Sakamoto, was a cherished chef at the Imperial Court. Their sons, embodying the spirit of the land, toiled in the family’s fields and gardens.
Every male in the lineage was a master of the fishing craft, celebrated for capturing a fish so elusive that none could rival. The women of the Sakamoto clan had a culinary touch unmatched in all of Japan. It was Satosi’s catch and the produce harvested by their sons that the Emperor relished. And when it came to preparing imperial feasts, none but Juna Sakamoto could grace the kitchen.
