Trivia In the staff lunch scene, an apprentice demonstrates the correct technique for dipping sushi in shoyu (soy sauce). It must be turned upside-down so the shoyu touches only the fish. In high-end sushi restaurants such as Jiro's, the itamae (sushi chef) applies a seasoning to the fish with a brush so the customer doesn't need to use shoyu. See more »

Quotes Jiro Ono: Once you decide on your occupation... you must immerse yourself in your work. You have to fall in love with your work. Never complain about your job. You must dedicate your life to mastering your skill. That's the secret of success... and is the key to being regarded honorably.
