There's no denying that Japanese cuisine is one of the most remarkable cuisines on the planet. It's simplicity that's delivered in the most sophisticated way. And there's no arguing that Australia upholds its culinary excellence throughout its seemingly never-ending list of Japanese eateries dishing up authentic sushi.
