TOKYO: The boss of a well-known dumpling restaurant chain was shot dead on Thursday in the ancient Japanese city of Kyoto, a hotbed of the country’s yakuza mobsters. Takayuki Ohigashi, 72, was found bleeding and unconscious in a parking lot in front of the company’s headquarters in Kyoto at about 7 a.m., the Ohsho Food Service company said. He was later confirmed dead at hospital. Ohigashi was president of the “Gyoza no Ohsho [King of Dumplings]” chain, operating more than 650 restaurants throughout Japan, as well as a handful abroad.
