Not everyone was fortunate enough to have a Japanese Grandmother to teach them the etiquette behind sushi. And by teach, I mean yell “dame, dame, dame” as I ate with my fingers, loaded my shoyu with wasabi, and generally made an embarrassment out of myself.
So for all you “gaijin” out there, I found this nice little image depicting the “dos” and “don’ts” of the sushi bar. So next time you decide you want Japanese, make sure you apply what you learn here. You never know who’s going to yell “dame, dame, dame” when you break the rules.
It could be my Obasan. She’s everywhere.
