How do you enjoy sushi?
To enjoy sushi, grab it with your chopsticks and eat it up. When using condiments like soy sauce, turn the sushi upside down to dip the fish or topping part in the soy sauce. If you dip the rice part in the soy sauce, the rice will absorb too much soy sauce, and the sushi will be too salty.
How do you get a taste for sushi?

- Dip a piece of sushi into the soy sauce.

Why does sushi taste so bad?
Maybe you got some really bad rice ( too much vinegar) or fish, or there was too much wasabi on it. Or maybe your palate is especially sensitive to the vinegar on the rice and thus everything seemed sour. If you want to pursue this, try ordering sashimi – raw fish without the rice, and see how that goes.
Why do Japanese eat wasabi with sushi?
The most easy-to-spot effect after adding a pinch of wasabi into Sushi and Sashimi is that it will reduce the fishy smell from the food (because the dish uses raw fish). The next effect you will find is when you have a bite. The wasabi will give a refreshing, hot flavor to the food.
Is it rude to eat sushi with your fingers?
It is OK to eat nigiri-zushi ( sushi) with your hands. Sashimi is only to be eaten with your chopsticks. Pick up the nigiri-zushi and dip the fish (neta) into your shoyu, not the rice (which will soak up too much shoyu). Gari (ginger) is considered a palate cleanser and eaten between bites or different types of sushi.
