      It depends. If you are someone that likes sushi, but primarily sticks to salmon or rolls with sauce and fried shit, then there's no reason to go there. Nothing wrong with fusion/adapted sushi, but you might as well stay where you're at.

      If you like the real stuff, then yes, it's a lot better. From the quality of the ingredients to the preparation, it is generally better across the board. Japan has possibly the highest food safety standards in the world, and competition is cutthroat in the restaurant industry. Even a lot of the kaitenzushi chains (like Hamazushi, Sushiro, etc.) are better than 98% of what you can find in the US or Europe.

      For high-end, you can drop ~$200 pp and have a life changing experience, if sushi is really your thing.

      I was born in Okinawa, used to live in Tokyo, and have traveled to Japan a lot. I wouldn't travel there just for sushi, though I have it when I am there.

      Yeah, Japanese pussy is great.

        That's not true. Cheap sushi in Japan isn't much far off from cheap/mid-priced sushi in the US. The expensive stuff, though, is way beyond.

          The only real difference is that cheap sushi generally sells out, is refreshed more often than the cheap shit in the US. Some of the cheap sushi you'll see at a grocery store here may have been there multiple days where it's more likely to sell out daily and be refreshed with new product in japan.

    Yes and no. Think about burgers in the US. You can get one anywhere but how many places make a truly good burger? Same thing.

      >Is sushi in japan that much better than usa?
      Where the frick do you think sushi comes from? It was invented and perfected there, they get the freshest fish, spend 4 years learning how to make rice, and treat it like fine cuisine.

      It's not your average "fusion" trash made by chinese to larp as real sushi, or made by some mystery meat "asian" supermarket garbage.

      What's the big deal anyway, it's fish on rice.

        They started putting InO’s in other states. It’s alright. Grilled onions is def the way to go, but there’s a huge lack of options even basic fast food places like McDonald’s provides. Example, a simple bacon cheeseburger. The fries are also awful, but the shakes are okay and I like their pink lemonade. Overall, the place isn’t special - it just used to be foreign and exotic so it was super hyped when it came here but now no one cares

    Pretty much THE best. I tried sushi from Whole Foods once and even a really authentic hidden gem in California called Yoshinoya, both failed in comparison. Sushi is just not doable outside Japan, anyone who makes it outside of Japan is really doing a disservice to one of the staple foods of their country. No one ever made good sushi outside of Japan.

        Lol next you'll say something like sushi was only for poors in Japans history being near inedible for the most part. It wasn't till some Japanese American in California during the 50's/60's who completely reinvented the idea and identity of sushi is the only reason it's popular today.

    Sushi in the US is mostly goyslop with spicy mayo and other unhealthy ingredients to cover the taste of the fish being bad.

        Japan doesn't use preservatives
        Japan only buys fresh meat even for 711 it's right in tokyo bay for the fish market daily
        Japan rice is healthier
        Japan doesn't faulter and use goyslop like avacado or seasoning it's just fresh fish
        Japan doesn't overcharge you for it, no 15 dollars+tip for a roll like here in LA
        Japan has seasoned chefs making it right in front of you
        Japan has the better restaurants with cool Japanese business men eating there
        Japan's sushi is healthy, you never see a fat japanese person like you do in USA

    It depends. Sushi has many price points and levels of service. A high-end place will make use of regional and seasonal ingredients so it's always fresh and made with great skill. It's the most authentic in Japan of course, but can be matched elsewhere depending on where you go. Fine dining is very similar around the world.

    It's worth it, simply for the fact that they actually use real wasabi and not green horseradish

    It’s like Italian pizza vs New York pizza.

    If you like simple, fresh ingredients and simple flavors, Japan is better. If you want something drenched in sauce, packed with a bunch of flavors, and deep fried, America is better. I’ve been in Japan for a decade and I’ve got to admit, sometimes I really just want some deep fried sushi filled with avocados and smoked salmon and drizzled with spicy mayo and teriyaki sauce. Plain fresh tuna on plain rice tastes good, but it’s like eating an expensive, rare steak every single day of your life. You get bored and sometimes you just crave a messy ass burger.

      This anon gets it. Spent 3 months in Japan and ate at several conveyor sushis, sushi restaurants, konbini and grocery stores

      Japan is just simple flavors. Fish and rice. Thats about it. I like eating the tuna mince, but after a while you get bored of the simplicity. The American rolls really mix it up. The Japanese rolls were good on price, and better quality ingredients but pretty bland.

      Heres the real issue though. You can have Japanese style sushi in the U.S. but good luck ever finding American style sushi in Japan.

    The sushi you can buy at convenience stores could be mistaken for mid/upperrange NA restaurant sushi in my experience, at least if you are comparing two nigiri. Not life changing, but it is like 1/6th the cost which makes it enjoyable in its own way.

    As you go further up the price range I think it just diverges too much to compare. In america expensive sushi starts to devolve into increasely elaborate rolls (often with deep fried ingredients, multiple sauces, elaborately plated) whereas in Japan it stays simple and you are basically just getting higher quality ingredients.

    You can easily find comparable sushi on the west coast of the US if you know where to look
    However it's much easier and cheaper to find in Japan obviously
    Anyway I would never travel anywhere just for one specific food item

    I've eaten sushi in Japan, and it wasn't significantly better than good sushi place in France.
    I still think sushi is overhyped, like so many things in Japan (Wagyu is another one).
    I was disappointed with takoyaki too, okomiyaki is good (Osaka style is the superior one)
    Their karaage is really good too though, but we don't really do fried chicken in Europe, so I can't compare.

    In general yes. I haven’t been in a decade but I remember I couldn’t find anything comparable for a while after I got home and I live in the Pacific Northwest. There are definitely damn good sushi restaurants here that compare but the big difference is the quality of the lower tier sushi in Japan and the variety. Not everything is tuna, salmon, and mackerel. It’s like croissants in France. The expectation of having a quality croissant is higher and they are made the right way more often. Yes you can still buy a prepackaged rubbery croissant shaped thing in France but more people know better and expect higher quality.

    If you are traveling in the fall then get the uni my dude. Easily my favorite.
