Salmon is said to be the most favorite sushi item among foreigners.

It must be a very familiar fish to foreigners.

By the way, the Japanese word for salmon is “sake”, which comes from the language of the indigenous Ainu living in Hokkaido, Japan.

The word “sake” in the Ainu language means summer food.

Recently, a national Ainu culture center has been opened and the momentum to pass on Ainu culture has been increasing.

I welcome this trend because I believe that having and passing down many cultures will lead to the richness of the country.
