Popular Japanese restaurant in Marina Bay Sands
Marina Bay Sands is known for its distinctive appearance in that the SkyPark connects the tops of the three towers facing Marina Bay in the south of Singapore. Takumi Yamamoto is located on the second floor of the facility which includes shopping malls, casinos, theaters and restaurants.
Opened at the same time that Marina Bay Sands started in July 2010, the restaurant was renovated to its current appearance in 2017.

After that, he supervised many other restaurants, developed many more products and is still an attraction both at home and abroad as a top chef.
