Tokyo is the city with the most sushi restaurants in the world.
But its also one of the hottest places to make your own sushi.
A new study from Next Big Futures suggests that Tokyo has a lot to offer in terms of quality, affordability and convenience.
The results are based on a survey of 5,000 sushi chefs in Japan, which was conducted from November 2015 to March 2016.
A whopping 80 per cent of respondents reported they had made sushi at some point in their careers, with an additional 12 per cent saying they had been making sushi for more than 20 years.
A full 82 per cent also said they had tasted sushi at least once in their lives.
And, according to the study, sushi restaurants offer a wide range of different dishes, from sushi to shiitake mushrooms, with a large percentage of respondents making the latter.
“This survey shows the popularity of sushi in Japan and the importance of sushi restaurants to local and foreign consumers,” the study’s lead author, Daniel P. Ochs, told Next Big Finance.
“It also shows how people are able to make sushi at home.
These findings will be useful for sushi makers to further develop the quality and value of their sushi.”
The study found that sushi chefs are able with relatively little effort to produce a sushi that is consistent, tasteful and affordable, with high quality ingredients, such as fish, rice and other fresh ingredients.
However, the authors warn that quality and affordability are still lacking.
“The current trend in sushi production has seen increasing sushi prices and a shift towards cheap sushi.
These trends have caused the demand for quality sushi to drop significantly, and many restaurants have closed down.
This could be a factor in the increasing number of sushi deaths, particularly among younger consumers,” they wrote.
“While sushi restaurants have been able to maintain their position in the market, there are still many opportunities for chefs to diversify their business.”
