We don’t care about money.
All I want to do is make better sushi.
I do the same thing over and over, improving bit by bit.
There is always a yearning to achieve more.
I’ll continue to climb, trying to reach the top, but no one knows where the top is.
Even at my age, after decades of work, I don’t think I’ve achieved perfection.
But I feel ecstatic all day… I love making sushi.
That’s the spirit of the shokunin.
When to quit? The job you’ve worked so hard for?
I’ve never once hated this job.
I fell in love with my work and gave my life to it.
Even though I’m 85 years old, I don’t feel like retiring.
That’s how I feel.
Thanks to Hugh for the tip.

This guy definitely never entered McDonalds and eat a BigMac 🙂 When I’ve worked in Norway, I remember we had a Danish chef who enjoyed so much his job, that after every story he told us about cooking, we were simply starving 🙂
Beautiful! ” I gave my life to it”. The gentle way he touches and forms the food shows how “life” and “care” can be put into matter…when I eat a meal like that….it can be felt!
beautiful, he made sushi. dedicated his lif what he believed in…
I solo audit and dedicated my life.. because I believe in the tech and I believe in my self that I can: each day is new, each session is new, each cognition is new, and I am just staring out…
Marvelous. Like sushi too. Humn good!
My life has become dedicated to truth, aiding and abetting.
