Edomae Sushi

Edomae Sushi

Introducing “Real Sushi” that locals enjoy and can be found in department store basement grocery stores, supermarkets, and 24-hour convenience stores! When you visit Japan, make sure to savor the real sushi beloved by ordinary people. You can’t truly understand real sushi by only dining in fancy restaurants!

Edomae Sushi

Edomae sushi is an assortment of sushi made with seasonal fish. The types of sushi vary depending on the season and price range, but generally, tuna, salmon, squid, and shrimp are included in all Edomae sushi.

Price Range

The price range is between 700 yen and 1,500 yen.

How to Eat

In high-end restaurants, you have to follow the traditional sushi etiquette while being mindful of the chef’s gaze. However, when you take sushi back to your hotel to eat, you have the freedom to eat it your way.

Personally, I pour the accompanying soy sauce over the sushi and eat it by piercing it with a fork!

If you don’t like soy sauce, you can also enjoy it with salt. Depending on the type of fish, it can enhance the fishy flavor, but even in high-end restaurants, there are sushi variations eaten with salt, so it’s not the wrong way to eat it.

If you find that you don’t need the salt and pepper that come with in-flight meals, it’s convenient to take them back to your hotel!

Sushi is a very healthy food, but if you eat too much, you’ll gain weight. Rice dishes may have low fat content, but they are high in carbohydrates, so it’s dangerous to eat a lot of sushi at all-you-can-eat or conveyor belt sushi places.

But you don’t have to eat a lot! Let’s savor the deliciousness!

Remember, quality over quantity!
