The production press conference of TBS Spring 2015 drama "Tenno no Ryoriban" was held on 20 April which was attended by Sato Takeru, Suzuki Ryohei, Kuroki Haru, Sugimoto Tetta, Takeda Tetsuya, Go Hiromi, Kobayashi Kaoru, Kiritani Kenta, Emoto Tasuku, Takaoka Saki, Miho Jun, Kato Masaya, Sato Gajiro and Ashina Sei. The drama which will begin its run from 26 April in the Sundays 9pm timeslot, is TBS' 60th commemorative production and Sato's first TBS drama where he plays the lead. To fit the image of his role as a man who works his way up to become the chef for the emperor, Sato cut his hair by 20cm and jokingly commented that he looks a lot like his father now because of this hairstyle. When asked about his cooking experience, Sato admitted that he hardly cooks. However, since he loves to eat and wanted to learn properly how to cook, he did attend a cooking school in the past.
