In this episode, we'll follow Hiroshi's journey from chopstick novice to sushi connoisseur, as he embarks on a series of lighthearted adventures at the renowned Hishi Sushi, discovering the joy and deliciousness of Japanese cuisine.
En: As Hiroshi stepped into the luxurious building located in the center of Tokyo, the fresh scent of sashimi filled his nose. It was his first time entering the renowned restaurant "Hishi Sushi" in this city. The high-end interior decor and the well-maintained black chopsticks shining before him made his first sushi experience even more special.
En: Hiroshi had no idea how to use chopsticks. However, he boldly picked them up without hesitation. His clumsy movements may have seemed laughable at first, but his innocence brought warmth to the hearts of the chefs. One of the chefs, Tanaka, a master sushi chef, kindly observed Hiroshi's first attempt at gripping the chopsticks.
En: Contrary to his innocence, Hiroshi himself felt a sense of impatience. He was conscious of the gazes around him. He picked up a piece of sushi with the chopsticks and tried to bring it to his mouth. However, his movements were too exaggerated and the sushi ended up flying above his head.
En: For a moment, silence enveloped the room where Hiroshi was seated, and the next moment, everyone burst into laughter. Hiroshi blushed deeply and lowered his head in embarrassment.
En: Tanaka then said to him, "When bringing the sushi to your mouth, firmly grip the chopsticks and pinch the side of the nigiri sushi." He prepared a fresh piece of sushi for Hiroshi once again.
En: Following Tanaka's advice, Hiroshi picked up the sushi with the chopsticks and carefully brought it to his mouth. This time, he successfully avoided any mishaps and managed to savor the sushi.
En: With wide-open eyes, Hiroshi tasted the impeccable flavor of the sushi, and the surrounding customers burst into laughter once again. "That's it! How does it taste?" Tanaka asked him, and Hiroshi nodded enthusiastically, saying, "It's amazing!"
En: On that day, Hiroshi learned how to use chopsticks and discovered the deliciousness of sushi. And his journey with chopsticks became the beginning of lightheartedness and enjoyment at Hishi Sushi, as it turned into a series of small adventures and great joy.
