Kifune – Oroshi, Toki-City, Gifu-Pref., Japan.
The Chef Ito practiced at Tsukiji Sushiko in Tokyo, that is one of the most popular Sushi restaurants, and opened Kifune more than 20 years ago. In the “NO-SEA Prefecture”, GIFU, he carefully selects seafoods at fish markets in Nagoya area according to the customers’ preferences and requests. His cooks ingredients in season with simple and authentic decoration.
Even fishermen and fish dealers admire Chef Ito’s dish.
We have visited him for photo shooting of our new collections, and Mast Ito generously worked with us.
