Hosted by the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fishery of Japan
WORLD SUSHI CUP® Special Event “International Sushi Workshop”
Event Information


To all foreigner chefs in Japan,


Due to COVID-19, it is difficult for the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries to host the “WORLD SUSHI CUP🄬” for overseas sushi chefs like every year, so this year we will hold the “International Sushi Workshop” as a special project for foreigners working in Japan. It is an opportunity for chefs engaged in restaurants, culinary schools’ lecturers, students, etc. to learn about sushi while experiencing it with the aim of deepening their awareness of Japanese food and food culture through sushi.
In this event, in addition to the sushi chefs from the Japan Sushi Environmental Health Federation, we have invited the “Sushi Evengelists” whom have guided and spread sushi knowledge in 50 countries around the world –Mr. Masayoshi Kazato, the representative director of All Japan Sushi Association Sushi Skill Institute and its Director General Mr. Ogawa Hirotoshi as lecturers. Participants will learn from the basics and at the same time experience tasting sushi that brings out the deliciousness of Japanese ingredients.
It is a valuable opportunity to receive direct guidance from top-notch sushi chefs. Why not take this opportunity to learn sushi cooking techniques? We look forward to your participation.
