Roll over, male sushi chefs. In Japan, women challenge tradition

TOKYO — It’s Friday night in Tokyo and a bunch of men are lined up at a bar, drinking draft beer so cold the glasses have frosted over and eating plate after plate of sushi. So far, so normal.

Not normal, though: The chefs making the little slabs of rice and laying the fish on top are all women. In Japan, that’s a sight that’s even rarer than a late bullet train.

But a handful of women are challenging the age-old notion that their gender can’t make sushi.

“I hope that someday it’s not ‘male sushi chef’ or ‘female sushi chef,’ just ‘sushi chef,’ ” said Yuki Chidui, the manager of Nadeshiko Sushi, Japan’s first and only sushi bar run entirely by women.

Sushi chefs, like sumo wrestlers and geisha, are stereotypical personifications of Japanese culture.
