Sushi Counter Photograph

Sushi Counter Photograph

Usage conditions apply
The photograph shows the sushi counter display in what appears to be a gourmet food store or liquor establishment. There are no pre-packaged sushi trays at the counter. An employee dressed in a red and white striped shirt, a red apron and a red and white cap, stands behind a case of sushi-making materials while preparing sushi for a customer. An image of a sushi platter is displayed on the counter, suggesting the types of products that can be ordered. Another employee, an Asian male dressed in a white shirt and red tie, also stands behind the counter. A red and white sushi sign hangs above a large fan and a microwave, and other Japanese artifacts such as dolls and lanterns are also on display to create a ‘Japanese’ feel to the space.
