The Japanese word Nadeshico literally translates into "ideal woman," and now Nadeshico Sushi is Japan's first sushi restaurant with a full staff of all-female sushi chefs. The restaurant only hires attractive females that are in the 18-25 year range.

Traditionally, the art of sushi making has been a male-only career. In this new restaurant, there is complete role reversal. Working behind the sushi bar are the females, and sitting in the dining room over 90% of the guests are male. Nadeshico's house specialty are sushi rolls made to look like adorable pandas and frogs.
