  • Balancing tradition and innovation
  • Teaching craft across generations

  • On mastering craft and why it takes 50 years to be a sushi master

“Did you ever question what you were doing?” René

“The only questions was, how can I get better?”

“The people who are truly at top won’t say, they want to retire at 70 or 80.They just fasten their seat belts after that.” Jiro
