Fiery Chef Yama
|Location||Sei'an City (Commoner's Quarter)|
|“||My study of the art of cooking must go on. I will not abandon my cherished dream! Though this means I must start the ultimate dish again from scratch, such challenges make life worth living, right, pup?||”|
Yama wears a green happi with several red straps that help tying the sleeves up to his shoulder. He also has a white apron that has the kanji 「山」 (「やま」?; yama; lit. "mountain") tied to the waist. On his happi is the depiction of a field of water rice. Tied on his forehead is a white headband. Yama has a large straw fan that is used in cooking to fan fires upon early stages of burning wood. He also has some resemblance to a cat because of his cat ears-like hairstyle, triangular feline nose and eyes, and whisker-like markings on his cheeks.
- Yama and his restaurant, along with Umi and his restaurant, are based on the Japanese story of The Restaurant of Many Orders.
- The scroll with the Fireburst symbol is still present in Yama's kitchen during the events of Ōkamiden.
- His English name is Japanese for "mountain", which is written as 「山」 and is also the kanji shown on his apron.
