Information

HELLO!

Im Ryo Uchiyama. I enjoy a simple life by the ocean. This is reflected in the surf house that Ive built organically through the years using shipping containers and wood. Its a laid-back place, ever-changing, and filled with my favourite items handmade by friends and artists.

I love cooking using natural and seasonal ingredients, including making sushi. My passion for Edomae sushi led me to sushi school in Tokyo, after which I turned my kitchen into a small sushi bar to share my craft with local and international visitors.

I have been surfing for many years. Iioka beach, my home break, is nearby. It is a great spot for all surfers whether beginner or advanced. Iioka is part of Kujūkuri, a long and popular surfing coast in Chiba, Japan, where you can surf the Pacific Ocean!

THOUGHTS ON FOOD

Did you know that every day, billions of cells in our bodies undergo regeneration? These cells, which shape us, are essentially formed by the food we consume.

That is why I am mindful about what I use in the kitchen. For example, I try to choose wild-caught fish, game meat, and vegetables grown in pesticide-free, healthy soil.

However, in our world today, it is challenging to source for high-quality produce and ingredients, even in Japan. I tap the gaps in distribution channels or select ingredients based on my past experiences with them. While handling everything in the kitchen – from rice and vegetables to seasonings, utensils, and knives – I also find it important to remember that they have all arrived through the profound work and beliefs of their producers.

Food also serves as a medium for connecting people and creating encounters. It fires my imagination, providing endless moments of creativity, personal development, and joy. It’s always fun to explore the different aspects of food and create new possibilities.

How about you? What is your perspective on food and how do you approach it?
