Best Sushi in Japan

When it comes to Japanese food, what do you think of? sushi? katsu? soba?

In this blog, I will introduce REAL SUSHI you can have in Japan.

Disclaimer: cheap sushi in your country is usually not real sushi… What is considered real sushi? Real Japanese sushi, in its original form, consists of only four components: cooked rice, rice vinegar, seaweed, and either fresh raw fish or vegetables. A sushi master’s skills are measured by the quality of ingredients he/she chooses and how well he blends them together.
