Demonstrating his absolute dedication to quality, Chef Musashi now creates his omakasesushi masterpieces at Musashi by Aman exclusively from rice he has grown himself. He returned to Yamanashi, the prefecture of his birth, in 2020 to investigate farming his own sushi rice. He found the perfect spot, fed by spring waters from Mount Fuji, and planted his first crop. He returned regularly to check its progress and assist in weeding by hand, preferring not to use chemicals, and after a fruitful first harvest, he planted again in May 2021. Experience the unique flavour, texture and purity of this homegrown rice at Aman Tokyo in the heart of the capital.
One Dinner, Two Journeys
21-23 October 2021
Join Musashi’s Master Sushi Chef, Hiroyuki Musashi and Arva’s Executive Chef, Masakazu Hiraki for a unique 12-course tasting menu. Taking guests on a journey through two distinct cuisines, the master chefs will go head-to-head in a friendly competition, creating their own individual dishes using the same ingredients yet led by the culinary heritage of Italy and Japan. Alongside fresh produce including Ise-ebi lobster, white truffle and Keiji salmon, diners will also experience rice harvested by Chef Musashi himself in autumn. Running for just three nights, the journey will take place at Musashi’s counter, where guests can also choose to pair the experience with prestigious wine and Sake for a truly exceptional evening. Advance reservations are required, and places are limited to four diners per group.
