About us

Concept and philosophy

- European sushi -

Being Japanese, we are proud that sushi has become an internationally recognised dish –appreciated all over the world, including Belgium.

However, we often come across sushi that is not prepared according to Japanese standards. Recipes are regularly imported from the USA using deep-fried techniques and sweet/spicy sauces.

Of course we welcome local adaptations of an original dish; but at KO’UZI we want to translate the Japanese spirit into sophisticated European variations of sushi.

We focus on the quality of the fish, and at the same time, give the dish a western touch and design. Our “creative” sushi pieces are made with out-of-the-ordinary ingredients, but always stay true to the refinement and tradition of the original Japanese bites.

- Sharing knowledge -

KO’UZI is also giving workshops in which we share our knowledge in genuine Japanese spirit.

It is not always easy to find in Europe correct information on sushi and its ingredients...

On the other hand, Japan’s government started to invest in exporting its food culture by promoting “Washoku” (Japanese kitchen).

And the All Japan Sushi Association is setting up a certification system to encourage foreign sushi chefs to level up their skills based on authentic knowledge of Japanese food.

At KO’UZI we want to contribute to these programmes through our workshops, where you can learn to make sushi the way it was meant to be made.

Junko Kawada

Owner & chef

Having spent her youth primarily in Europe, Junko imported and distributed Belgian and French chocolates in Japan in her early professional years.

Since her marriage in 2006 she has lived in Belgium.

In 2007 she organised an international sushi competition at the Lyon food event “Sirha”.

KO’UZI sushi shop opened in June 2008 at Sint-Jorispoort, Antwerp.

In 2013, Junko was the runner-up in the World Sushi Cup in Tokyo with her creative sushi. A Japanese public jury took into account originality, taste, technique and presentation of the sushi created by chefs working outside of Japan.

After six years, in 2014, KO’UZI moved to a bigger location – just down the street at the Leopoldplaats – where we share a space with our partner Azumaya, a Japanese tea café.

What do Japanese people drink with sushi?  
Green tea!

Hot and strong green tea is considered the best drink to combine with sushi: to help remove the "fishy" taste in your mouth; to detox your body and kill bacteria thanks to catechin. 

At Ko'uzi you can enjoy a selection of high-quality green tea (Sencha, Hojicha, Genmaicha) directly imported from Japan by our partner Azumaya.  

There is also a tea shop space where you can buy tea pots, cups and more tea leaves variations: Matcha, Fukamushi, Kabuse, Shiraore, Kyobancha... 

If you are genuinely interested to learn more about Japanese green tea, you can follow a customized workshop!
