It's true, but that's just one of the reasons. After all, it's not just about tradition.

Pickled ginger

Pickled ginger is one of the main ingredients in sushi and rolls.
The use of ginger has its own form.
A piece of pickled ginger is placed on a roll or sushi, which is first dipped in soy sauce.

A piece of sour ginger plays another important role. It can help get rid of the taste of rolls or sushi by being fully prepared for tasting food before trying another dish.

Wasabi and ginger are served in small bowls.

Soy sauce is also used to complement the flavor of sushi. Many people like to mix three ingredients and dip sushi in the resulting juice, but Japanese chefs are against this, especially when mixing wasabi with soy sauce.
According to them, each seasoning has its own purpose, and using the whole bunch together can spoil the true taste of sushi.

As you can see, the benefits of these two irreplaceable ingredients of Japanese cuisine are many. In addition to the exceptional taste, without which it is difficult to imagine Japanese cuisine, they have many beneficial properties for the body.
This once again proves that Japanese cuisine is one of the most delicious and loved by people.
