Nippon, or Nihon: the nation of Japan

Eat at a Japanese restaurant over the holiday and write about it for indie credit (put it in a GoogleDoc). Japanese restaurants feature Sushi and noodle dishes and Teriyaki in addition to a world of less-familiar dishes (be aware that sashimi indicates raw fish). Unfortunately, the average Japanese restaurant, such as Ichi Ban, is not as cheap as a Chinese place.

I have not yet been to Sushiko in the Louisiana Boardwalk. I'd like to try it. I regularly eat sushi made fresh daily by a Korean fellow at Brookshires. It's good. Freshness is a big deal with sushi; if you try it on a Chinese buffet it may be terribly disappointing.
