Minako Imada

Imada is a pioneer in the art of etiquette and table setting in Japan. After studying at a number of national patisserie cooking schools and hotels in Europe, she opened the “Salon de L’Art de la Table de Minako Imada,” a self-taught classroom covering topics from table settings, to baking, and etiquette.

She has received numerous awards throughout her career, including the first ever award given by the French government for table setting, and gold medals from Swiss and German national patisseries for her outstanding work.

In 2009, the “Salon de Muse Imada Minako” tea room opened at the upscale Takashimaya department store in Shinjuku, Tokyo.
