Sushi’s presentation has evolved over the years, when it began as a means of preserving raw fish in Southeast Asia and eventually became a form of “fast food” sold from street vendors. Now a celebrated cuisine worldwide, sushi has become an art form, with each restaurant offering its own signature dishes of nigiri, sashimi, and maki. On International Sushi Day, sushi connoisseurs and sushi novices are encouraged to dine on their favorite RA Sushi dishes or explore the menu and try something new!

All 25 of RA Sushi Bar Restaurant locations nationwide will participate in International Sushi Day. To make this holiday even more official, RA Sushi has declared June 18 as International Sushi Day in Chase’s Calendar of Events, the most comprehensive and authoritative reference available on special events, worldwide holidays, civic observations, and more. International Sushi Day will appear in the 2011 edition of Chase’s Calendar of Events.
