Funa Sushi

Kita Tomomi

Jul 11, 2017

“Funa Sushi” (carp sushi) originates from Shiga Prefecture. Funa Sushi is a kind of Nare Sushi (fermented sushi) which uses freshwater fish that’s packed with salt and rice and left to ferment until the taste is just right. The lactic acid produced from the fermenting proteins preserves the fish and keeps it from rotting, and gives Funa Sushi its signature fresh, sour taste.

Compared to modern sushi, the sourer taste of Funa Sushi makes it unpleasant to some people. But Funa Sushi contains abundant nutrients such as Vitamin B1, calcium and minerals that can enhance female beauty. If you visit Japan without trying any Funa Sushi, I don’t think you can claim you ate any “real” sushi at all! As Funa Sushi is a fermented food product, it can repel bad bacteria in the body and help in preventing cancer.

So I think you should really try the Funa Sushi for your health and well-being! Dig into some good Funa Sushi at Shutei Ofuku in Otsu City at only 780 yen.

日本の握り寿司(nigirizusi)の原点となったのが、この滋賀県のふな寿司です。ふな寿司は「なれ寿司」の一種とされ、淡水魚(tansuigyo)を塩とご飯で発酵(hakkou)させてから程よい味に馴れあわします。自然発酵(sizenhakkou)によって生成されるタンパク質の乳酸(nyusan)が魚肉(gyoniku)を腐敗(huhai)から守り、その乳酸独特(dokutoku)の酸味や旨味が珍味(chinmi)として重宝されてきました。現代の握り寿司よりも酸っぱいため苦手な人もいるかもしれませんが、ふな寿司には女性にうれしい栄養素(eiyouso)が多く、ミネラルやビタミンB1、カルシウムが多く含まれており美容にもおすすめです。

日本に来たら、おそらくお寿司を食べられるかと思いますが、ふな寿司を食べなければ真のお寿司を食べたとは言えないでしょう。発酵食品(hakkousyokuhin)であることから体内の悪玉菌(akudamakin)を撃退(gekitai)してくれる効果もあり、ガン予防にも効くそうなので、ぜひ健康のためにも食べてみてください!大津市にある酒亭おふくで780円で食べることができます。
