Japansk tempelWho is the speaker?

The speaker is sushi chef & Sake Sommelier Zoë Escher, who has had a close relationship with Japanese people and Japan since 2001.
Since 2001, I have practiced kendo at elite level, receiving training mainly from Japanese instructors in Denmark and in Europe.
After a few years, the martial arts brought me to a training camp in Tokyo. Here I had the opportunity to train at the Tokai University, which is Japan’s most prestigious university of martial arts students. Furthermore, I also trained in Yoshinkan dojo, which is the best kendo club in Tokyo.

In 2006, I traveled to Los Angeles and became a sushi chef and Sake Sommelier at the California Sushi Academy, which is owned by the Japanese celebrity sushi chef Toshi Sugiura. As part of the training, we made catering to celebrities and movie companies in Hollywood.

Since then, I have traveled to Japan almost every year to take inspiration, broaden my horizons, visit Japanese friends, practice kendo kata, and enjoy the beautiful country.
