Jiro Dreams of Sushi

Funnily enough, I started watching the documentary partly for the sushi and partly because I’m still feeling nostalgic about my trip to Tokyo last year but ended up enjoying it for what Jiro and his sons stand for – the quiet persistence, work ethics and hard work that go into honing the craft.

Particularly precious in today’s world of instant gratification and impatience for recognition, Jiro Dreams of Sushi was inspiring to watch and bitter-sweet. Bitter-sweet because I’m not sure if Yoshikazu and Takashi have children and if their children — along with the children of other master craftsmen — will continue the legacy of their grandfather and fathers.
