Appointment of New Chef de Cuisine of Girandole, Manabu Ichizuka

Born in 1965 in Ishikawa Prefecture, Chef Ichizuka began his culinary career in Kanazawa at a hotel after graduating cooking school. He then trained at the legendary, Michelin-accredited Le Grand Véfour in Paris, L’Auberge Bretonne in La Roche-Bernard and La Pyramid in Lyon. In 2002, he was awarded with the prestigious title of Maîtres Cuisiniers de France “Jean Schillinger” at the French Food Culture Center (FFCC).

In 2007, Chef Ichizuka was Chef de Cuisine of French Kitchen at Grand Hyatt Tokyo. He then left in 2011 to become Chef de Cuisine of Crown, the Michelin-starred restaurant at Palace Hotel. He was there for 6 years until his recent appointment at Park Hyatt Tokyo. During his time at Crown, he came in 2nd place for the 66th Prix Prosper Montagné World Cuisine Contest in France.

With his many years of mastering French culinary arts together with his passionate cooking technique of enhancing seasonal ingredients through the 5 senses, we anticipate a very special dining experience at Girandole under his leadership.


Chef Ichizuka says that, “My culinary background ranges from casual to fine dining and I have constantly strived to integrate my originality in my cooking. I look forward to combining that with the delicious selection of seasonal produce available at Girandole for our guests to enjoy.”


We would like to welcome our new Chef de Cuisine to Park Hyatt Tokyo and cordially invite you to savor his personal style of French cuisine at Girandole.
