 I saw the movie Jiro and was very moved by the idea of shokunin, which I understood to be humbly doing the same work day after day and always trying improve on it. We had written about it in our book. I also was touched by the father-son dynamic — the father's care in training the son, the son's challenge in succeeding a master. I had much joy in hearing the inimitable auctioneers in the Tokyo fish market, although they spoiled it by underlaying a percussion track. Sad to see that the tuna on display was much smaller even than what I saw when I visited in 2001 — as Aubrey noted.
