52 Sushi Playing cards

There are two types of sushi restaurants : Conveyor belt sushi restaurants and traditional sushi restaurants. When you go to traditional restaurants (without conveyor belt), you will expected to order your own dish one by one. But, you don't need to get nervous about it. You might want to take a couple of step-up approach. Here are some tips.

Step 1:
When you visit a sushi restaurant for the first time, let's start with "Moriawase" (sushi combo). Usually there are 3 ranks such as Reguler (Nami), Deluxe (Jyo) & Super deluxe (Toku-jyo).

Step 2:
You can come back again only if your first visit experience is satisfactory. This time, let's step up to order some dishes of your favorite in addition to the combo menu. You can use 52 Sushi playing cards on such an occasion. Pick up your favorite one and ask them "ARIMASUKA?" by showing the card.

Step 3: When staff at the restaurant remember your face, they are kind and friendly and their sushi is delicious at reasonable prices at your 2nd visit, let's visit them again! Now you are one of their regular customer. :-)

Please make a note there are a lot of people who have never been to a traditional sushi restaurant even among Japanese. One important thing you should keep in mind when you are at traditional sushi restaurants is that you should be stately. People don't usually take playing cards with them when they go to restaurants, but it's better to equip yourself for better communication as required. You can ask them whatever you want with confidence. Good things about traditional restaurants is you are able to become acquainted with chef. When you become their reguler customer, you can bring your friend and teach him or her how to order. When you can find a good sushi restaurant and have good time, you cannot help thinking about who to take there next time. Let's work hard to enjoy real good sushi. You can easily order 52 Sushi playing cards online.

For those who don't feel easy about going to traditional sushi restaurants, I would like to introduce one of my favorite sushi restaurants. The master's wife (Okami) is overflowing with affability and chef serves great sushi.
