Whispers of an ancient tradition, a culinary delight. A crisp white teapot and countless cups yet to be drunk…the madness of Japan stirs your senses. The soul rings true with the decor and the tea is steeped at just the right time.

History behind Shogun
The contemporary version of sushi that we know today was created by Hanaya Yohei in Tokyo in the mid
18th century. It was an early form of fast food that could be eaten by hand and was served in theaters and roadside restaurants.
The original version was created in the 8th century and is about three times bigger in size. The term sushi means “sour-tasting”, referring to its historical origin as a fermented food made to preserve fish by wrapping it in soured rice.
In recent years, sushi increased in popularity as it proved to be healthy, easily digested and trendy.
On a personal level, Japanese cuisine has changed my life. By bringing you this unique cuisine from a fascinating culture, I hope it will change yours too.
