In theory, sushi is a simple thing to be enjoyed in almost any way you like. Eat it standing or seated, with fingers or chopsticks, dipped in soy sauce, mixed with wasabi, swallowed in one mouthful or more. However, if you want to eat it like a Tokyo local, remember that sushi etiquette changes with the setting.- CNN Travel
