I have been invited to sushi places abroad by Gaijins and they all think its the best they have tried, if I scored the restaurant it might have got a 5 for effort so yes sushi is not just a piece of raw fish stuck on rice, its a lot more than that!!! It would take ten years to fully understand what I mean.

heres what some of you my not know. Most Japanese restaurants in the US are run by chinese OR Koreans. Here in my town its run by chinese & they play chinese music. this is why its important to study cultures. Most people go in there & think its "Japanese music" & have heard some people say areegato. NO responce from the so called sushi chef. i try to tell everyone they are chinese, they are not usually polite. & YES its arigatou & i know how to pronounce it. i was imitating they way most people say it, the wrong way.
