Beat Kiyoshi opened a new restaurant in Yokohama in July. The name of the restaurant is “Star Place”. ……

Beat Takeshi descended on the Cannes Film Festival in France with his new film “The Head,” his first film in six years. The film was entered in the “Cannes Premiere section,” and in addition to Takeshi, other attendees included Hidetoshi Nishijima, Ryo Kase, and Shidou Nakamura, who also appeared in the film.

The film is scheduled to be released this fall in Japan. The film is scheduled to be released in Japan this fall, and we are looking forward to seeing it, as it features a star-studded cast that is typical of Takeshi’s films.

Behind the scenes of the “Takeshi of the World,” his partner is also making new moves: …….

Beat Kiyoshi, the partner of the comedy duo “Two Beat,” opened a new restaurant in Yokohama on July 3.

This time, I want to make it a place where people can enjoy themselves among friends,” he said while sitting at the counter.

Sitting at the counter, Kiyoji looks somewhat relaxed. The name of the store is “Star Place,” which is short for “famous coffee shop. The name of the restaurant is “Starba,” which sounds like a famous coffee shop when abbreviated, but it is …….

Whenever I uploaded my Twitter feeds, I always put “#Starbucks now” just for fun,” he said. Then I got a lot of comments from my followers asking me, ‘When are you going to Starbucks, Master? So I decided to create my own “Starbucks” (laughs).

(Laughs.) So I decided to create a Starbucks, a place where stars are born. Well, I’ve never been to a real Starbucks. ……

In the past, Master Kiyoshi opened a yakiniku restaurant called “Yoshinasai,” which was named after a well-known comic dialogue tsukkomi. The flowers that Takeshi received as a gift for the opening of the restaurant were said to say “Stop,” and as he said, the restaurant has already been closed.

Well, that store was a production,” he said. Still, my partner was right (laughs).

But this time, I want to make it a really fun place to hang out. It won’t have girls, but I’m sure all kinds of celebrities will be there.

True to his words, on the first day of the opening, the restaurant was visited by such celebrities as impersonator Akira Shimizu and actor Jiro Okazaki. On the 4th, when we visited the store, we were joined by singer and composer Katsuhiko Miki, and tambourine performer Gonzo, a semifinalist on the world-renowned audition program “Got Talent,” who has appeared in commercials and other media. Also in the store was Raper Sato, a well-known “Robocop impersonator,” who kept the guests in a whirlpool of laughter.

We want to create an atmosphere where celebrities can come here and perform their songs and tricks in a relaxed atmosphere. I want the restaurant to have that kind of atmosphere. It would be great if we could have fun with the customers who come here.

And on Friday and Saturday nights, we want to provide a place for young comedians and artists to perform. Not only entertainers, but also many people from the industry come here, so I think it will be a good opportunity for them to learn and promote themselves.

Says Master Kiyoshi. Perhaps a star performer like Two Beat will be born in a few years from the “star place” where stars gather.
