Chef Inoue opened the restaurant with the vision to educate the Harlem community on what the traditional sushi experience is like. Every piece of sushi is handcrafted in front of you with art and precision and is presented one at a time. Chef Shinichi Inoue was born in Nagasaki, Japan, One of the most Western regions. Although some of his ancestors were Samurai, his family didnt have much. So after graduating High School, he needed to get a job. A job that required skills would make him enough money to go to a University. The best place to do that would be to go to Tokyo, Japan. He always wanted to be a Sushi Chef, so that is what he did.
