Japanese sushi chefs Junichi Onuki and Naomichi Yasuda spent years abroad in London and New York City perfecting their craft, both receiving rave reviews and boosting their notoriety in the culinary world. Now, both have returned to Japan to head up sushi joints and learn more about their heritage. "[In London] I was responsible for telling people about Japanese culture. I felt that I had a very important role," Onuki said. "Suddenly, I really missed my culture and wanted to see authentic Japanese cooking. I really felt that I had to go back to Japan."
