What Is the Right Way to Eat Sushi?

If you want to eat sushi the traditional way, you should start by pouring a little bit of soy sauce into your side dish. For nigiri, you can use either your hands or the chopsticks to dip the fish into the soy sauce. Be careful not to dip the rice or it will fall into the bowl. Eat the entire piece in one bite.

You can use either your hands or the chopsticks to pick up the rolls or the sashimi and dip them into the sauce. If you want a little bit of a kick, you should mix in some wasabi. Learn more about eating sushi in this video.

Constitution Day
Occurring on May 3rd, this may not be an official summer holiday but it is close to the season!

This annual event celebrates two deities, Orihime and Hikoboshi, and the love they shared when they met. Starting on July 7th, Tanabata, also known as the Star Festival, runs for many days throughout July and August. Customs for this special festival include writing down wishes and creating poetry. People often attach their wishes and poetry to bamboo decorations that are either sent floating or burned following festival activities.

Following Buddhist customs, Obon is a ceremonial time of year when Japanese people honor their deceased loved ones and ancestors. Some people celebrate Obon on July 15th while others wait until August 15th. Obon festivities typically last for three days, featuring many different activities that honor and show respect for the deceased. It is normal for Obon festivities to end with a beautiful display of fireworks.

Respect for the Aged Day
One of the last summer holidays celebrated in Japan in the Respect for the Aged Day. This holiday was once celebrated on September 15th but is now held on the third Monday of September each year. This is a time for individuals and communities to celebrate the lives and accomplishments of the elderly.

Knowing about the characteristics of different cuts of steak can help you figure out which cuts you prefer and which ones you should order during your next sushi and steak meal!

As you will see in this video, certain cuts tend to be tenderer than others. That is because these cuts feature muscles that do not do much work. Other cuts feature muscles that work a lot, but these cuts can be made tenderer with the proper cooking techniques.
