Japanese Cuisine Masters Host Ultra Rare London Pop-Up

Chopsticks at the ready for this exciting Japanese pop-up

If you love Japanese culture and cuisine, don’t miss out on this delectable dining experience. All Nippon Airways (ANA) and premium food blog Luxeat are set to fly some of Japan’s first-class culinary masters to London for a unique dining experience – and you’re invited.


Japan’s award-winning 5-Star airline has partnered with Aiste Miseviciute, the former fashion model turned food blogger and founder of Luxeat, to bring an authentic flavour of Japan to the UK capital from 31st October to 2nd November.


Three masters of Japanese cuisine will come together to host a special dining experience. The first time three of the world’s leading sushi, Wagyu and tempura shokunins will cook together, some guests are expected to travel all the way from Japan for the event – as securing a reservation at the chefs’ own sell-out restaurants is notoriously difficult.


The talented lineup includes:

1 Two Michelin star sushi master Kouji Kimura

L1000306-1650x1100-1Dubbed the ‘father of aged sushi’ for his distinctive technique in taking the traditional art of aging fish to new levels and combining this with pioneering new styles of sushi.

2 Japanese beef master Kentaro Nakahara

-なかはら_中原シェフ-1024x614Regarded as one of the best Wagyu shokunins in Tokyo and whose Wagyu katsu sandwich is considered among the best in the world;

3 Tempura master Shuji Niitome

Capture-1Known for his speciality seafood, meats and vegetables and whose 10-seat tempura restaurant in Nagoya is ranked the best by the prestigious tabelog.com guide.


The initiative forms part of ANA’s ‘We Are Japan’ programme, designed to create a deeper appreciation of the island nation and its culture – and to connect with those who share a passion for the best the country has to offer.


A trio of tasting occasions dubbed ‘Culinary Journeys’ will see fabled food masters from Japan showcase their artistry at  modern dining destination Yashin Ocean House from 31st October to 2nd November.

31st October to 2nd November 2018. Tickets start from £375 per person. Visit luxeatana.eventbrite.co.uk to book.
