Japanese model-actor turn cooking show host Mocomichi Hayami has been dubbed the “Jamie Oliver of Japan” and it’s not hard to see why — he has no lack of affable charm or culinary prowess.
He first made his acting debut in 2002 with the drama You’re Under Arrest, before shooting to fame with his first lead role in the 2005 drama Gokusen 2.
Aside from acting, his keen interest in cooking also led him to pursue a career as a cooking show host on Moco’s Kitchen, where he shows off his expansive repertoire of easy-to-follow gourmet recipes.
