Here is an example when sashimi is served not only for its taste, but also for its artistic presentation at Tomii Japanese Cusine Restrant in Shizuoka City:
The dish is of lacquered wood.
Top left: kanpachi/Amberjack on a bed of fine leafy vegetables and topped with shiso/perilla flowers (all edible).
Top centre: Uni/Sea Urchin (Murasaki/Violet variety).
Top right: Isaki/A snapper variety behing a fine slice of red radish.
Centre left: Hon Maguro/”Trie” tuna (it acyually melts inside the mouth!)
Bottom left: Aka Ika/”Red” cuttle-fish
Bottom centre: Hirame/Sole in front of a fine slice of red radish
Bottom right: beside freshly grated wasabi, Sakura Ebi/Cherry Blossom Shrimp (only caught in Yui, Shizuoka Prefecture. It will be very difficult to get them fresh in Tokyo!) on a shiso/perilla leaf
