Many would agree that sushi is probably the essential image of japanese food, and it’s been in Japan for ages. Surprise is that, what we consider sushi is the modern version of a more ancient style. The sushi we find in restaurants and sushi booths nowadays is the “modern sushi” invented during Edo era, just a couple of centuries ago, and it was invented as a form of fast food, nothing to compare about nowadays fast food image. Sushi is not only rice with raw fish, as many varietes you can imagine, some of them delicious, some other varieties, not so much. Meat, vegetables, fruit, any combination is possible, but the king is, and hopefully will always be, raw fish.

In automatic sushi restaurant chains you use a touch screen to place your order and a small wagon comes from a rail in front of your seat and brings you the order. No need to interact with the staff.
The heaven of sushi, in Tsukiji, is the area with small booths and restaurants. So fresh, tender, tasty and well prepared that makes you pray to fish gods and thank them for the meal, literally my friend was praying while staring to sushi and the first time I tried the sushi set at Daiwa Sushi, I cried of food happiness, and so did my friend.
