Hitoshi Sekimori

Hitoshi Sekimori (関守 平(せきもり ひとし), Sekimori Hitoshi?) is a Tōtsuki Academy Alumnus who oversaw the Tōtsuki Friendship and Rapport Training Camp for the 92nd Tōtsuki Generation. He is the owner and head chef of the sushi restaurant, Ginza Hinora.


Hitoshi is seen with dark hair and his eyes remained shut.

Unlike the others who used modern chef uniforms, Hitoshi is often seen in the Japanese cuisine chef uniform and wears wooden clogs.


Like most members of the Tōtsuki Academy Alumni, Hitoshi is very serious towards matters regarding food quality and artistry as he has a philosophy that the culinary arts are a product of profit in the culinary economy. His discipline states that for those unwilling to take chances, there will be no glory.

Hitoshi is also a calm and cool headed professional who uses his logic and discipline.


Hitoshi graduated from Tōtsuki Culinary Academy before the students of the 79th Generation did. Shortly after the 79th Generation's graduation, he invited Kojirō Shinomiya, Fuyumi Mizuhara, Hinako Inui, and Donato Gotōda to his restaurant's grand opening. Noticing something wrong between Kojirō and Hinako, he urged them to reconcile. He also extended an invitation to Hinako to come work for him, though he also consoled her to take her time to think about her future before she graduate. He was also impressed upon hearing Kojirō's plans in Paris and how he had heard about various new sushi places opening there. When Hinako fled outside after being annoyed by Kojirō, he warned Kojirō to go after her or he wouldn't give him any more toppings. He voted for Kojirō during the two's Shokugeki and witnessed her finally give Kojirō her blessing to go to Paris along with his promise to Hinako that he would become successful.
