The taste of Funazushi is very strong. It is like well-formanted cheese with sour smell.
But recently, Funazushi has been highly praised among other asian countries, such as Malaysia and Thai.
In response to this, Shiga Prefecture decided to promote the PR of Funazushi toward Asia and Europe area.
So, in the near future, if you see Funazushi in your country, you should try take a bite of it.
It is a Sushi worth trying, becuase if Funazushi( Narezushi) hadn’t been created, you were not enjoying Sushi in present day.
Talking about Fermented food, probably Natto is the most famous Japanese fermented food.
Actually, Natto is also known as a very nutritious food just like Funazushi and has been getting attention from other countries as an unique ultimate style of food.
Those fermented food could be the next trend of Japanese food.
So you’d better keep your eyes on Funazushi!
