According to, June 18th is International Sushi Day, and the first year it was celebrated was in 2009. International Sushi Day was created for one simple reason – to encourage all around the world to eat and love more sushi. Fun fact: Southeast Asians developed the original type of sushi, which consisted of fish wrapped in souring, fermenting rice. The dish then spread to southern China before reaching Japan.

Why We Love Sushi (and International Sushi Day):

1. The Taste
Looking to have your mind blown? The possibilities are endless as you create your own combination of seafood, vegetables, seasonings and sauces and have your sushi your own way. Mmmmm.

2. It’s Very Healthy
It’s difficult to get much healthier than raw fish and veg. The rice maybe isn’t the healthiest food in the world, but the carbs in it will give your body the energy it needs. If you’re looking to lose weight and stay in great shape then sushi is the way to go.

3. Variety
You’ll never get bored as there are a plethora of things you can choose with sushi. Even if you don’t love everything on the menu you will find something that tastes great. For extra flavor and spice, use soy and wasabi to dip your your food in.

You can celebrate International Sushi Day early with half off all food at Sushi Roku in Scottsdale on Thursday, June 15, 2017. Even though International Sushi Day is on Sunday, June 18, Sushi Roku is rolling out a one-night-only dining deal a few days early, tempting sushi fans Valley-wide with 50% off all food.
