Tokyo’s Most Sought After Sushi

FOOD: Tokyo’s Most Sought-After Sushi

The hype surrounding Tokyo’s unassuming sushi restaurant Sukiyibashi-Jiro is so great that it has spawned its own documentary film. Jiro Dreams of Sushi tells the story of 85-year-old Jiro Ono, considered by many to be the world’s greatest sushi chef. Despite its humble appearance, Jiro’s inauspicious 10-seat counter restaurant tucked away in a Tokyo subway station serves the city’s most sought-after sushi. Proud recipients of a three-star Michelin Guide rating, fans from around the world book months in advance and pay a premium for a seat at Jiro’s sushi bar. Jiro Dreams of Sushi is a thoughtful investigation into the meaning of work and the art of perfectionism.
