Where does a Restaurant named Shota come from?

I'm a huge fan of the Japanese sushi comic book Shota No Sushi, from which I learned the sushi spirit of not forgetting the original intention, never giving up, and endless learning, which allowed me to learn infinite sushi in the process of learning sushi for more than 20 years happily. Today I finally have an opportunity to achieve my dream to open a sushi restaurant and continue to inspire myself under the name Shota.
