Ultraman exploded as a pop culture icon in Japan after his 1960s debut on the science fiction television show bearing his name. The superhero alien, who fought monsters threatening to destroy Earth, was unbeatable—until the last episode of the series when a monster named Zetton finally beat him.
Fast-forward several decades later, and it appears that Waikīkī now has a Zetton of its own. Named after the “Ultraman” victor, Zetton Inc. runs 85 restaurants around Oʻahu, Japan and South Korea. The Japan-based restaurant group comprising Kenichi Inamoto, CEO; Daisuke Kikuchi, COO; and Makoto Hasegawa, director of operations, has opened six eateries in Waikīkī within the past 10 years and plans to launch two more.
