Anywhere you go in Japan, there are plenty of culinary specialities that will delight, and sometimes surprise your tastebuds. Most of us know, of course, about sushi and ramen, but Japanese cuisine is in fact a lot more varied and complex than that. In many restaurants, there is one speciality that they have been perfecting for a long time, but there are plenty of variations and original dishes depending on the regions.
An iconic Japanese dish, sushi and sashimi are dishes most of us have tried and often have in our own countries. Sushis are made with a piece of rice, various fishes, vegetables and nori (seaweed). Depending on the shape and ingredients, you can find either Nigiri sushi, Maki sushi, Oshi sushi, or Temaki sushi. Also emblematic of the country, sashimis are sliced raw fish usually consumed with soy sauce and wasabi.
