Sushi in Japan

IMG_8426

Learning the names of fish in Japanese is invaluable for reading menus in sushi bars or working out which kind of sushi you are buying in the supermarket. This Hello Kitty furoshiki (traditional Japanese cloth used to wrap things) is great, as it includes the name in Japanese characters, in roman characters and in English. Maguro is common bluefin tuna, while toro is the fatty part of the tuna, tai is snapper, hamachi is yellowtail, tamago is egg, awabi is abalone. You can write down the different kanji or roman names in a notebook and carry it with you when you go out to eat, and it won’t take long before you have memorised them!
