Go Here: Sukiyabashi Jiro in Tokyo

Sukiyabashi Jiro Pics

Whenever I hear too much enthusiasm about something, I usually decide that it’s exaggerated, and ignore 3/4 of it, on account of how mature and open-minded I am. When I heard that a tiny subway-stop sushi restaurant in Tokyo had the best sushi in the entire world, I scoffed. I’m a believer now. Sorry, Jiro.

Sushi master Jiro Ono has made it his life’s work to perfect the art of sushi — and the 85-year-old has done a pretty good job of it. So good they made a movie about his life, and it has a 99% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. This dude creates inspiration out of raw fish — that’s an accomplishment.

Though it’s been a life-long quest for Jiro, it was when director David Gelb released his 2011 documentary ‘Jiro Dreams of Sushi‘ that Mr. Ono started to receive a lot more attention. Every local in town already knew where to get the best sushi in town, but the world was listening now. The film was an official selection of the Tribeca Film Festival that year, and food critics from around the world declared Sukiyabashi Jiro to be the best sushi restaurant on earth.

To eat at the tiny, life-changing sushi spot, you’ll need to book your table several months in advance — Jiro is a busy man, and he doesn’t show any sign of slowing down. If you don’t believe me, check out some of the reviews. ‘Jiro Dreams of Sushi’ is also available on Netflix streaming, so you really have no excuse not to check him out, even if you hate sushi. It’s not a movie about sushi, it’s about spending your life getting better at something you love, and what that does to a person.
