Doshu's in a difficult position in that almost everybody who speaks to him wants something, and he's very careful not to say or do anything that can be misused or misconstrued. Mitsuteru is much more approachable, although that sense of control and wariness is still there.


Dear Chris,
Cannot be easy for Doshu.I personally would never put him or anyone in an awkward position .Just felt he could have been more available in Cardiff. I do not expect him to be one of the guys but a balance could have been struck..Of course perhaps after I had made an hurried exit from said venue, maybe Doshu was Ok?Never waited around after the no chairs/pricy liquor.Had a good time slumming in Cardiff.Cheers,Joe.
