This is an official event that is sponsored by the Consulate General of Japan in Miami, and it is free and open to the public. The host will be sushi chef and owner of Toshi’s Koume Japanese Restaurant in Sunrise, Mitsutoshi Sekita. Mr. Sekita is an experienced demonstrator who was the Master of Ceremonies at the 2009 Sushi Master’s Competition in Miami, which occurred during the consulate’s Japan Week and was sponsored by the California Rice Commission. Mr. Sekita is also a former consulate staff member who was particularly well-known for his memorable school visits around Miami Dade and Broward counties.
This event is being held to encourage an interest in Japanese culture and cuisine as well as to promote outreach and communication between the consulate and the local community.
