American sushi is more colorful than Japanese one. I had thought the reason people from oversea don’t like black food, rolling with seaweed, however, I noticed that it is not just the reason.
When Japanese people explain ingredients for making sushi, they call black things rolling up sushi SEAWEED. I think this word, seaweed, gets sushi’ impression worse.
I checked up the definition. According to my dictionary, Weed includes
Seaweed is wild plant growing where it is not wanted that prevents crops or garden flowers from growing properly.
This is a plant that is not welcome for people. It is treated like a virus in the sea. However, people can eat seaweeds and they contain natural antioxidants such as polyphones. I think power of word has a big influence or impression.
