History of International Sushi Day and How to Celebrate/ Observe It

Sushi is a Japanese dish that traditionally consists of cooked rice, vinegar, and fish. It is often served with pickled ginger, wasabi, and soy sauce.

Sushi is thought to have originated in Southeast Asia, and the first recorded use of the word sushi in Japan was in the 9th century. In the 18th century, sushi began to appear in Tokyo as a street food. It was not until the late 19th century that sushi became widely known and popularized in Japan.

Today, sushi is enjoyed all over the world. And on June 18th, we celebrate International Sushi Day!

There are many different types of sushi, but some of the most popular include nigiri (sliced fish on top of rice), maki (rice and fillings rolled in seaweed), and temaki (hand-rolled sushi).

No matter how you enjoy it, sushi is a delicious and healthy way to celebrate International Sushi Day!
