Sushi is Japanese cuisine with vinegar as the main ingredient in the rice. Like other Japanese cuisines, sushi is very bright in color.

When it comes to sushi, the first thing that pops up in my mind is sushi with sashimi on the rice balls. However, I dare not eat raw meat, so some people say that if I go to Japanese cuisine, I will have half the choice. This is true.

I don't know much about sushi. I heard that it comes in various forms, such as hand rolls, nigiri sushi, inari sushi, etc. Among them, "sushi rice balls", I personally accept it more.
