Even today, most sushi chefs are men and a female one is more than a rare sight.
Nadeshiko Sushi is a restaurant that actually has a female sushi chef.
It is just 3 minutes from JR Akihabara station, on the second floor of the building in the picture.
Nadeshiko Sushi is the first sushi restaurant in the world to have a female chef.
It opened in 2010 with a supporting message that women can challenge themselves in fields that have been reserved only for men.
Besides the sex of the chef, the restaurant keeps the traditional sushi techniques originated in the Edo period.
They also serve other Japanese traditional foods and sake.
Nadeshiko Sushi is definitely one of the must-visit restaurants in Japan.
