This is a wet towel that may be hot or cold which is used for wiping your hands and face. You may wish to use it repeatedly if you are eating your sushi with your fingers.
Pour some soy sauce from the jar into your little soy-sauce dish, and then dip the sushi into the dish before eating it. Pour out only a small amount, and then add more when you run out.
This small dish, about 10 cm (4 inches) in diameter, is used for holding your soy sauce. Pour in a small amount of sauce form the soy-sauce jar, and then dip pieces as desired before eating. Note that not all sushi pieces require soy sauce; a few types come with their own special sauce, others may use salt, and still others should be eaten with no additional flavorings.
This powdered green tea, which is served hot, has a subtle aroma that does not overwhelm the delicate taste of the sushi. It refreshes the tongue and brings out residual flavors.
Some shops provide disposable chopsticks known as waribashi which come fused together and are broken apart before being used. Feel free to eat sushi with your hands, however; it's a true finger food.
These are small wooden trays on which sushi pieces are served. Not all shops use these; some set the sushi on leaves or on plates.
Proceed at your own pace, and satisfy your curiosity. Prices are often posted on the wall, but feel free to ask if you are uncertain. A frequent approach is to order a fixed combination and then order additional pieces one by one.
If you want to get a balanced assortment of the day's best offerings, you can leave the selection up to the sushi chef. If you're concerned about pricing or if there are some types of fish you really don't want included, feel free to speak up before ordering.
Turn the sushi piece on its side and grasp it gently but firmly so that the fish doesn't fall off the rice. Dip the fish side into the soy sauce, and then lift it to your mouth and eat it.
Hold the lower chopstick stationary, and move the upper chopstick to grasp and release your food.
Turn the piece and its side, and gently lift with the chopsticks.
Dip the fish side into the soy sauce, and then eat it.
It is perfectly acceptable to eat sushi with your fingers. If you are not good with chopsticks, or if you simply prefer to not use them, feel free to eat with your hands.
As with chopsticks, turn the piece on its side, dip the fish side into the soy sauce, and eat it.
