From onigiri to maki, nigiri, sashimi and chopsticks, everything you can imagine is here. There were so many more but I tried to be realistic…I don’t know if it’s because Japanese art is so sophisticated and advanced, maybe because kawaii style and manga have a lot of drawings and image decorations but there are a lot of beautiful watercolors or graphic works of Japanese food on the internet! I discovered a great artist, Justine Wong, creator of the project ’21 Days in Japan: An Illustrative Study on Japanese Cuisine’, consisting of 100 paintings of her meals throughout Japan. It’s so beautiful!

You know, some rules of sushi eating are that you should grab the nigiri with your hands (not chopsticks) and you dive only the fish at soy sauce, not the rice 😉 . I think my favorite tastes are at sashimi dishes, i love almost everything! And imagine that years ago I hated sushi!
Of course here we have also cats in sushi and cats in soy sauce, cats can never be missing from Japanese illustrations!
