International Sushi Day – June 18, 2020

Thu Jun 18

June 18th is International Sushi Day, and the first year it was celebrated was in 2009. International Sushi Day was created for one simple reason – to encourage all around the world to eat and love more sushi. Fun fact: Southeast Asians developed the original type of sushi, which consisted of fish wrapped in souring, fermenting rice. The dish then spread to southern China before reaching Japan.

International Sushi Day Activities

  1. Create Your Own Sushi

    Pick one of the many ways to create sushi, go to your local fish market, grocery store to buy the ingredients, and handle business. Roll up that sushi with love! Pretty soon you’ll be a sushi-chef in no time.

  2. Give the gift of Sushi

    Bring a loved-one or friend to your favorite sushi joint, We’ll make the world a better place, one roll at a time.

  3. Head over to your Local Sushi Restaurant

    It’s that easy. Walk-in and enjoy your favorite rolls, or all you can eat portion at your desire.

Why We Love International Sushi Day

  1. The Taste

    Looking to have your mind blown? The possibilities are endless as you create your own combination of seafood, vegetables, seasonings and sauces and have your sushi your own way. Mmmmm.

  2. It's Very Healthy

    It's difficult to get much healthier than raw fish and veg. The rice maybe isn’t the healthiest food in the world, but the carbs in it will give your body the energy it needs. If you’re looking to lose weight and stay in great shape then sushi is the way to go.

  3. Variety

    You'll never get bored as there are a plethora of things you can choose with sushi. Even if you don't love everything on the menu you will find something that tastes great. For extra flavor and spice, use soy and wasabi to dip your your food in.
