Sushi is probably the most popular Japanese meal, however it doesn’t mean that Japanese people eat it everyday.
The way it looks like, is other common misunderstanding about sushi. Sushi, it’s not only sashimi nor “maki”. Sushi, in total, consists of variety ingredients, e.g., cooked vinegared rice, seafood, seaweed, vegetables, meat, fruits, etc. Sushi is often served with pickled ginger, wasabi, and soy sauce.
While being in Japan, definitely try sushi as well as other traditional Japanese foods!
Enjoy not only the taste; the way it’s served is usually very interesting. 🙂
