You have to be a real lover of traditional Japanese food to like that much sashimi. It looks awesome though, although that will run you in the double digits in any country...maybe triple. I don't see the wasabi anywhere...hopefully it's just hiding behind some cuts cause you can't have sushi / sashimi without wasabi!

I could eat that whole plate (or boat) on my own, and enjoy every second and mouthful of it! The wasabi in that photo is likely the light green lump with the scoring on top, lying atop the shiso leaf at the stern of the boat.

Sushi seems to have gone pretty much mainstream here in the U.S. One can find it even in the smaller cities. Reno, NV, incidentally, seems to be somewhat unique in that all-you-can-eat sushi is standard here (maybe US$19 for lunch, US$26 for dinner-- typically all you can eat in one hour, which is usually more than enough to fill most people up), and it's pretty decent too. (Ironic situation: On my honeymoon in Paris, France, we saw small sushi restaurants in the Latin Quarter where we were staying, and I have to say sushi in Reno is actually better than the sushi I saw in Paris! Of course, Paris and the French in general have plenty of their own superb native food, and one doesn't really go all the way to Paris to have the sushi.)

Anyway, a real washoku (和食、Japanese food) treat is a kaiseki ryori meal, if you can find a place that features it. I'm only aware of a single place, which is in the San Francisco Bay Area where I used to live. It's called Wakuriya(和厨), in San Mateo, California. One has to reserve weeks in advance, and it'll run you close to US$100 a person for the full-course menu (which is quite a bit less than in Japan itself). There used to be a second Bay Area kaiseki place (Kaygetsu), but I believe it's closed now as the owner(s) retired. Anybody else have a kaiseki restaurant in your neck of the woods?

Wow, someone else that uses $Texas besides me. Lol


I've had a Sushi boat before... only in Florida, though, on vacation. Less than $100, too.

I've never had Washoku or a Sashimi boat like that, though. Maybe in California, you could get something like that. Nowhere near me, though.
