How to Eat Sushi Like a Real Japanese

Eating sushi is a complex ritual in Japan. From the ingredients setting to the way you apply dressing on your nigiris, everything is meticulously set. Do you wish you had the manners an authentic sushiman would expect from you? Take note and do not shame your ancestors with an improper behaviour on the table.

  1. The Dressing

When sushi is served you will find wasabi, soy sauce and ginger. Avoid mixing wasabi with soy sauce. This is the American way. Do you fancy a more intense flavour? Apply a small amount of wasabi on the fish and… Enjoy!

  1. The Soy Sauce

Serve the soy sauce in a small bowl and use it to spice up sushi to your taste. When eating nigiri, do not dip the sushi on the rice side. In Japan, where sushi was born, people only dress the fish (rice has its own dressing). If you are eating maki or uramaki, it is a little bit more difficult, so you should only add a moderate amount of soy sauce.

Shaking or “wrining” the sushi after dipping it on the sauce is considered rude. After dressing your bite, take it directly to your mouth.

  1. Using the Chopsticks

If you are not a skilful chopstick user, do not worry: Eating sushi with your hands is widely accepted. This way you can dip your sushi without the risk of it crumbling down over the bowl. If you want to use your chopsticks anyway, you can use them to take a small bit of ginger and brush soy sauce over the fish.

  1. Chopsticks and Composure

Chopsticks are a Japanese cuisine distinctive item and, therefore, they have their own rituals. They should only be used to grab the food. Do not pin or pierce sushi! You already know using your hands is allowed. Besides, they are not toys: rubbing or biting them, or any other inappropriate use will be deemed as a great offence. If you need a break, leave them tidy next to your dish, not on the sauce bowl. This is an advisable and polite gesture. Leaving them elsewhere could mean you finished your meal.

  1. The Real Flavour

Enjoy the real flavour of every ingredient thanks to the ginger. Take a small amount between bites to cleanse your palate from residual flavours. This way, you will enjoy every piece as if it were the first one.

The last and most important rule you should learn on how to eat sushi is enjoying every bite in great company.
