What Sushi Do the Japanese Prefer?

Nobody knows sushi like the Japanese. So, when you’re looking for a truly authentic and high-quality sushi meal, it’s not a bad idea to take a look at what the most popular sushi dishes in Japan are. A while back, Asahi took a survey of eight hundred thirty Japanese citizens, asking them what their sushi favorites were. The results were as follows:

The number one sushi choice for the Japanese turned out to be chutoro, a medium-fatty variety of tuna. This selection claimed 15.3% of the vote. Sake, or salmon, came in at second place, with 9% of participants identifying it as their favorite. Maguro akami, or red tuna, claimed a close third place with 8.8% of the vote. These were followed by the likes of squid, sea urchin, salmon roe, and yellowtail.
