The story of father and son, Japan’s best sushi chef and his apprentice, will be taken over by the next generation of grandsons. Jiro’s work of raising numerous chefs is also highly received, as the chefs who learned under Jiro-san have opened well-known restaurants, including Sushi Masuda, Harutaka (both two-Michelin-starred), and Sushi Nakazawa in New York.
We frequently receive a question about reservation for Sukiyabashi Jiro. Honestly, it is very difficult to book a seat. Yet, it may be possible if you can ask Japanese regulars to take you with them or stay at a high-end hotel and ask the concierge to make a reservation.
I hope this book will be translated into English soon. If you are interested in the sushi legend and his family, I highly recommend the book!
