Bluefin (Kuromaguro)

A single Bluefin Tuna can weigh up to 180kg and it sells out in the early mornings once the trawler comes to shore. A small slice of prized raw Bluefin could cost you around $600. This light red fish taste literally like a soft slab of butter and is sweeter than your average tuna.

Salmon (Sake)

One of the most common but nonetheless delicious fish is the Salmon. A great slice of salmon sashimi costs around $10 in Japan. This bright orange slice of fish oozes with healthy omega-3 fatty acids never fails to make any sushi lover drool uncontrollably. It’s tender and yet rich texture goes well with literally anything.

Swordfish (Mekajiki)

The swordfish is another highly regarded sushi fish in Japan. This lean white fish is usually served alongside its fin. Unbeknownst to most, despite the huge size of the swordfish, the edible portion of the swordfish is incredibly little, hence it’s really expensive.

Sea Bream (Tai)

The fish reserved for only the most joyous occasions, the Tai is the premium white fish in Japan. It’s relatively lean texture gives it a mild and subtle flavour that isn’t too overpowering. The Sea Bream is most commonly served during New Year and weddings.
