dxelson : Old guy couldnt express how offended he was 😂

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

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

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

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.

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

Alirak Kara : Sushi, if I remember correctly, was made by japanese fishermen who needed a more efficient way of eating rice meals while they worked. I like the authentic one because that's what I grew up with and because when I was a child, when I heard the story of the origins of sushi I liked to pretend I was a japanese fisherman when I ate some. But I also enjoy the western style one since, hey, if sushi was made to be a meal, it might as well be a full-course one, right? Yummy toppings~~ (I wouldnt eat it that often, though because it is kinda unhealthy, but at parties and events and stuff would be fine) Although admittedly I like my country's adaption the best, because it tastes like home :)

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

Nyla Noel : What about taste test Italian expats with Filipino spaghetti?

Factory Head : It's not sushi, so I'd just call it "American sushi" and be done with it.

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

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.

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

THE HULK : Japanese women so cute

Trac Nguyen : It’s like eating the Mama instant noodle & saying you’re eating Tom yum noodles when you’re not lol

al4sake : If they found out about Mexican sushi, they would internally earthquake. It's deep-fried and filled with cheese or meat.

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

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

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.

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...

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

Плющенко X : This is like the argument: Should American Cartoons influenced by Japan's Anime be considered Anime ? Obviously the answer is no.

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

Paul E. Ester : Japanese never serve unagi as sushi. enough said there. Great widio.

Anthony Lucania : Actually this is not true. In the U.S. we have excellent authentic sushi and sashimi. California rolls are just thst. We don't call them sushi. These people don't know what they are talking about if they call California rolls sushi. I have had many Japanese friends come to visit and they enjoyed the taste of California rolls. When I took them out for sushi and sashimi it is prepared exactly like it is in Japan.


Yun Chun : I'm ready to start a crowd raising campaign just to fly to Japan and finally taste some real Sushi ! It's a dream for a Sushi lover like me

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.

yia01 : imo, it not really fair to compare mass package market sushi to freshly make restruant sushi. we have a lot of freshly prep, fresh cook rice and raw fish sushi everywhere in the US and we also have tons of mass produce package with preservitive sushi in our supermarket as well.

ITK YSD : I'm Japanese but I don't like the idea that Sushi is meant to be authentic. well, I couldn't enjoy volcano roll when I tried, I thought it isn't sushi at all. Although it tastes not like sushi, I think if people can enjoy their own sushi, then it's fine. I appreciate non-Japanese people are interested in our food and develop it in their own way. And also, Japanese people are subconsciously doing the same in Japan as well!

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

twistedmc : America has everything from this to authentic Sushi. People insulting America are ones jealous they don't have the variety in their own country.

M M : With some of the American food laws it can be hard to have authentic foods from any region/country. My family always calls ethnic foods things like American-Mexican or American-Thai. Some restaurants put the time and money into making foods more authentic. The prices of you meal go up and are usually worth it. I know what we call sushi where I live is NOT considered sushi in Japan. But it's the closest we are ever going to get to having sushi. I like eel sushi in the winter.

Jason Krone : sadly alot of "japanese" restaurants in the western countries are opened by the chinese. and california roll is actually a thing not just in merica, you can have it in japan too and its quite popular among high school students, its called reverse import, just like babymetal.

Jackson Taylor : Could you interview Korean War veterans who are South Korean?

utengineer : Even though this video shows American versions of sushi, there are many authentic places to get Japanese sushi in the States. I live in Austin, Texas and there are dozens of places that use fresh fish and traditional Japanese sushi recipes. I have had sushi in Japan and found it very similar. I also took my Japanese friend(native) to sushi places here when she visited me last year. She is very picky and complimented a local sushi restaurant chef on our selections. This is an interesting video but only shows mainstream american style sushi. Now I am hungry for sushi, lol.

Bathrobe Warrior : I hope they know that we have real sushi abroad as well x'D.

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.

Richard E : No pinned Hiroko comment? 😥😥😥

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

Satoshi Hashizume : I like the two girl’s opinions: as long as American think of California rolls as Sushi, that is Sushi.

Rodigo Duterte : Try Japanese Animator react to American/Canadian Animation.

Mikhail Angela : Chinese people try Americanized Chinese food but then again its like getting Italians to eat American pasta or pizza

likeDC79 : To be fair most places that serve sushi outside of Asia is more American style. That or really poorly done. Personally, if the staff preparing my sushi aren't Japanese, I'm not buying

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.

Ki Muse : I dont like or eat sushi but, this is so painful to watch seeing their facial expressions 😅😂.

Ayacui0209 : Was just wondering how the Japanese would take food from strangers on streets that may be a scam :/ Seems like Japan is a safer country.

SH C : I think eating sushi is very dangerous and stupid because the Japanese sea is contaminated with radioactivity,

J : but no one screaming "CuLTurAL apProPriAtion"

Joseph McKinney : I want to try real sushi now.
