At 94 years of age, Jiro Ono shows no signs of stopping. Regarded as the world’s greatest sushi chef, Ono began working in restaurants at the age of 7.
First working as an apprentice to learn the art of sushi, Ono became qualified by 1951. Fifteen years later, he opened Sukiyabashi Jiro, which earned the coveted Michelin three stars.
So amazing is Ono’s sushi restaurant that Michelin stripped it of its stars in 2019 — only because it’s almost impossible to get into the restaurant! If you can get in, bring cash — lots of it — it will cost nearly $300 per person to dine here (without drinks).
