Japanese Lawyer Operating Sashimi Shop in India (News)
New Delhi, May 28 (Jiji Press)—A Japanese lawyer opened a sashimi shop near New Delhi about two months ago to promote the habit of eating raw fish in northern India.
"I'II sell sashimi steadily and prepare for the future" where the delicacy and other Japanese food will be popular in the region, said the 36-year-old founder of Sashimi Fresh, Nishino Yoshikazu.
Nishino, a native of Tokyo, was looking for opportunities outside of Japan as a lawyer before launching the new business in India to create jobs for local friends.
Raw fish are not habitually eaten in the New Delhi area, located over 1,000 kilometers away from the sea.
He enabled long-distance transportation of raw fish by having a Japanese sushi chef teach fishermen in southern India a technique to keep them fresh.[Copyright The Jiji Press, Ltd.]
