Sukiyabashi Jiro in Tokyo

“Studying hard doesn’t guarantee you will become a respectable person. Even if you’re a bad kid, there are people like me who change…Always doing what you are told does not mean you’ll succeed in life.”

FINALLY! It took a year, but I finally watched JIRO DREAMS OF SUSHI and boy what a treat!! So inspirational and mouthwatering, I didn’t mind the subtitles one bit.

I felt so many things watching this movie because Jiro Ono is 85 years old, so I wanted to hop a plane to Tokyo to experience Sukiyabashi Jiro before he retires, but who other than someone like Questlove can plan a trip to Tokyo at the spur of the moment? Besides, Jiro’s Michelin-3 star restaurant is located in a Tokyo subway station with only 10 seats, so I’m not guaranteed a reservation anytime soon.

It’s amazing how a small movie about a Japanese man’s passion for sushi could resonate and inspire this southern girl, but even with the language barrier Jiro’s message was universal:

LIVE your life, LIVE your passion and be the absolute best at whatever you do.
