The History of Juban
Juban, which translates to 10th, recalls the barbecue aromas and fragrant scents of Yakiniku Restaurants in the 10th District of Azabu or Azabu Juban in Japan. In 1992 Juban, Inc. was established. We sent our executive chef to Japan to study Yakiniku cooking at the most popular restaurants in Tokyo. He returned to design the recipes that are part of Juban’s current success.
