Pamela Palma : The original one will always be the best.

Ralph Boyer : Of course American sushi is not going to be the same as Japanese sushi. Just like Taco Bell is not genuine Mexican food, Pizza Hut is not genuine Italian pizza, and Panda Express is not the same as real Chinese food. Every country adapts the food of other countries to better match what the local people are used to and enjoy. In the U.S., you can find authentic Japanese sushi, as well as authentic Mexican, Italian and Chinese food, but you have to search it out - it's not on every street corner. However, the reverse is also true. If you get a hamburger or a pizza in Japan, it will taste completely different from what you're used to in the U.S. I was in Japan and ordered a hamburger (very excited to get a taste of home), and was shocked that it didn't taste anything like what I was used to. Again, they had just adapted an American food to better match what they're used to. Nothing wrong with that, just as there's nothing wrong with Americans modifying Japanese food.

Starseed-bb : i think people should remember that american sushi wasn't "stolen" and it's not a cheap imitation of the original japanese sushi, it was adapted by japanese immigrants who came to america and found new ingredients and got inspiration from other cultures too.

Jon & Ange : He was right in America we try really hard to cover up the fish flavor with mayonnaise and avocado. I guess it helps distract them from that fact the fish is still raw? A normal Japanese sushi spot > Expensive sushi spot in America

Vanessa porto : It's because they never tasted brazilian sushi.....huahuahuahua.....we put cream cheese in everything......literally everything!

dxelson : Old guy couldnt express how offended he was 😂

Chronolink444 : I'm Japanese. Sushi isn't rice on something. Sushi is the simplicity. Complexity isn't sushi. Japanese people can't accept fusion sushi why it ignores traditional Japanese cuisine rule. "Simplicity", "freshness" and "original tasty of ingredient" are important as traditional Japanese cuisine. Only fish can be ingredient of sushi in principal. We can eat beef sushi(We still feel wired) nowadays why it keep sushi's rule.

dimsum9797 : Next video should be Chinese people react to American style Chinese food

swankytiger420 : American sushi is closer to Korean kimbap than sushi imo since kimbap seems to be whatever you desire wrapped in rice and seaweed and that's how American sushi is. But our sushi just goes to show how much of a melting pot we are and I love that about us and all of our food fusions. Ever since I tried sushi/sashimi the more traditional way I tend to steer clear of rolls with stuff like cream cheese and if anything just stick with something that has only cucumber or avocado added to it since all of the other ingredients really is unnecessary and takes away from the flavor and overall experience. And fish is going to taste fishy but if its overpowering you need to find a new sushi restaurant to eat at because its def not fresh, even fresh frozen fish isn't supposed to taste overly fishy. I've always wondered what the Japanese thought of our sushi though. I'm glad they aren't completely repulsed by it (other than that one guy lmao) and seem to respect it for its creativity.

mrmongo673 : I never saw the types of "American" sushi you offered the Japanese people. My only sushi experience was to eat raw fish, such as tuna, wrapped in seaweed and rice in a concentric circle...

Gabby : Guy in the green jacket looked personally offended by the sushi omg😂😫

whitesketchbook : I am Asian and I love California rolls, Philadelphia rolls, orange chicken, pineapple chicken, etc. I am fully aware that these are not "authentic" dishes but they are so tasty regardless, so I will enjoy them as long as they are tasty.

Paragleiber (Gleiber) : Those two things that you showed there in the video look super weird to me as a European as well. Are these really among the most common sushi types in the US? I find that a bit hard to believe to be honest. I usually like your videos but here I feel like you gave the Japanese people a wrong impression. I don't think the average Western sushi is quite as weird as those things that you showed them there.

Cardboard Tenshi : We Brazilians put mango and fruit on our sushi... truly a god forsaken land

水神 : I am Japanese but I thought it looks tasty. I think that only raw fish is not sushi. Raw fish is mainstream now, but it was also fermented before cold insulation technology developed. It is natural to improve according to times, places and situations. If you devised it according to local people's taste, I think that it is a proper sushi.

Dayla : Funny. This is how I rate most foreign foods in Japan.

nighttime world : The funny thing is the Japanese do this to western food all the time!! the western food in Japan is soo bad cant really even call it western food ..

Wildchild_inc : Some Japanese Sushi chef came to the States and did it their way.

THE HULK : Japanese women so cute

Molly Dores : *laughing gently* haha its called Vulcano that make sense *serious scary voice* but it’s not sushi.

アレクサンダーハンス : Lol here in Mexico we put chipotle sauce and even jalapeño to sushi 😂

_millgecko : Volcano, tempura, and eel rolls are my favorites! I know they're not authentic but they're so flavorful

Sunny Apples : Nice video. But honestly no one cares what Japanese think of foreign sushi. Just like it's not important if people from Naples don't like New York Pizza, as long as New Yorkers enjoy it. Same with Sushi.

Le Japon en Noir et Blanc©️ : Good video as usual it's better for JAPANESE to not see French Sushi

Queen Sammy : Japanese sushi is the best

ELLIPSIS : Why do people have to hate other cultures adaptions of others food? (referring the comments, not the video). It's happened all throughout history. It's the coming together of cultures. There are lots of foods that had their origin in a particular country, that is now adapted by many different cultures around the world to suit their tastes.

Neyla García : Honestly, it’s because the majority of people have nation pride, even if they don’t admit it. I’m from Mexico, and when I was in Japan, they gave me “Tacorice” and I told them that Mexican tacos where better. They would do the same with sushi, Italian with pasta, and so on... Sometimes it’s not about flavor but nationalism (Even if we think not)

Gibz : since this is America, a california roll is sushi as much as Katlin Jenner is a woman

constance A : Old man was so disappointed he left after trying the rolls.

Jon Cabana : Are they original / traditional Sushi? NO. Are they still Sushi though? YES. There is a REASON they are called FUSION rolls. Just as how the Japanese took Indian CURRY and made it their own which is distinguished as “Japanese Curry” or “Curry Rice” AND how the Japanese took CHINESE Noodles and made it their own which became popular as RAMEN. Even the Chinese Chow-Mein got a Japanese version called “YAKISOBA.” All noodle based cuisines got it’s roots from CHINA. Such example is the ever popular Spaghetti where the ITALIANS took the idea of the Chinese Noodles and made it their own. PASTA, just another way to say noodles. Basically all CULTURALLY INFLUENCED but the core remains relatively the same. Although same CANNOT be said of the different flavors though Hahaha

Seven Proxies : Well personally I'd say that it's an unfair comparison since the "fusion rolls" aren't really sushi. That's not to say that they taste bad. I've had california rolls that were delicious. But I wouldn't call it sushi. There's a somewhat different approach to flavors in Japan and the West. Many dishes in the Japanese cuisine seem to pursue subtlety and put much more emhpasis on texture. Sushi in my opinion does not taste "much", but it comes across as fresh (like the seafood version of crispy fresh vegetables or fresh fruit) and the texture is very special. Western cuisine put much more emphasis on flavours and smells. Food is supposed to have ALOT of taste in the west. Preferably several different kinds of tastes at once, because complex tastes and smells is what westerners find exciting in food. But this philosophy of cooking does not really apply to real sushi.

Joseph McKinney : I want to try real sushi now.

Resurrect The Night : This channel is probably the most interesting one in all youtube

Ricky Ramsahai : lol more like japanese roast american style sushi

Benjamin Burbary : What's your favorite type of roll??

Study Buddy : It's interesting that they don't even consider it sushi. The thing is, when something is made outside the area it originally came from people tend to say it's fake and bad. I don't think that's quite true. Rather than that, I would say some of these items are inspired by the original rather than copied and can be considered different but good. Just like there are some top rated French restaurants in Japan, there are definitely high class sushi restaurants in other countries. Everyone should strive to create something new and original, while still acknowledging and respecting what is traditional. I enjoyed watching this!

Mazerin IV : Kinda figured as much. Most sushi where I'm from is "American sushi" because of the lack of fresh fish. If I'm craving traditional (real) sushi I go to the Japanese Mitsuwa market. The have both types, and the authentic sushi sells out quite fast. It's definitely different, but I do enjoy both. I just don't see our take on sushi as actual sushi.

myYT Acc : Fun fact! California roll wasn’t from Cali but Canada.

Myrre : Like the guy in the mask more or less said.. if it aint just raw fish on top of some rice it aint sushi.. Hell it even bugs me when I hear people call stuff that isn't sushi for sushi just because it comes from a sushi bar.. and I'm not even japanese.. In that case we could just start calling pancakes for waffles because they are basicly the same thing with different cooking methods..

Worms Blink : To be fair, Japanese and American foods have a very different flavour profile. Of course there would be changes to suit the American diet. However it would be really confusing for Japanese people travelling to the USA when they go to a sushi bar for a taste of home and find avocado and mayonnaise lol.

That Guy : No pinned Hiroko comment? 😥😥😥

Sv Vr : In my country they cook the fish all the way through lol. I've never seen raw fish sushi in eastern part of Europe. Maybe it's because we dont have high quality fish like the Japanese

Pablo Isidoro : What is strange? It's not just sushi. There are pastas that exist only in the USA and do not exist in Italy. The adaptation to the local taste is a sign of popularity that few cuisines have, like the Japanese or Italian.

sj4iy : I'm American but I far prefer the taste of traditional sushi and sashimi.

Luscious Angel : Oh no, we can definitely get fresh fish, but for whatever reason, most Americans prefer fried foods more than raw.

Wara Wara : Could you guys make a video explaining why Johnny Entertainment is not allowing its artist to go more globally? Like Hallyu. Have Instagram pages, upload videos on youtube etc?

Jaz Moi : Ojisan with the mask was like : NANI?!

Dave Scheer : I think that the interview was unfair as you presented them fusion rolls and not sushi , or sashimi , we have a lot of sushi bars at least here in Florida,and I can assure you the fish is freshly caught ,the average American that is not accustomed to eating real sushi, or is freaked out with the thought of eating raw fish or heard the you'll get sick from eating raw sea food , a lot of American people love sushi but like even in Japan it can become pricey so they end up with the cheaper version of fusion sushi , I live in Florida and I go fishing that way I know I get the freshest fish possible and have fun doing it , all I can say is Japan be patient Japan has been eating sushi and sashimi a long time for Americans it's still kinda new !we only been eating it for maybe 80 or 90 years ? Japan has eaten it a long time 100's of years , all this talk about sushi now I'm hungry for sushi and sashimi , got to go by !

Eve Baneh : every time I eat sushi here in New Zealand my friend who went to Japan would say "Japanese sushi doesn't taste like this! you HAVE to eat sushi in Japan" and I'd always reply "I PROBABLY WILL NEVER HAVE THE CHANCE TO GO THERE SO I'LL EAT WHAT I CAN GET

Brian Tezo : good thing i read the subtitles bcuz it sounded like funerals instead of fusion rolls
