I found this photo on the internet. I am going to japan next week. I would like to know what is the veggie on the sushi. I think it looks like some spring onion but would like to be sure.

    Can't say for sure, but it looks like spring onion… however, it doesn't look like actual Japanese sushi, it looks a bit "LA nouveau" to me. Are you certain it's actually Japanese?

  • Not really sure but the site mention Yoshi Zushi in Ueno, Tokyo.

    Can't be totally sure but it looks more like chives to me.

  • tbh, it's nearly 20 years since I was there… I guess there's such a thing as 're-importing' LA ideas back to Japan ;) @Cindy chives are 'green all the way', spring onions go to white, but I'm not sure; you may be right. stupid long google images link

It's scallion sushi

    Welcome! Instead of a “filler”, the answer would benefit from a bit more information... and as both links essential lead to one source, it definitely needs more details and explanation to avoid a “spammy” touch.

    @Stephie, I really don't have anything positive to say about scallion sushi, so I thought it would be better to leave it at that. I linked two separate sources with different takes on the dish. Commented Sep 17, 2019 at 16:49
