And finally… on the sauce

And finally... on the sauce

A man has been indicted for licking a soy sauce bottle as part of a wave of ‘sushi terrorism’ plaguing Japan.

Ryoga Yoshino, 21 was arrested after an incident at a Kura Sushi branch in Nagoya City last month.

He is accused of wiping saliva on some sushi and licking the spout of a condiment bottle.

He was charged with obstructing a business, Kyodo News reports.

Kenichi Tamura, his lawyer, said he felt “at a loss about what to do” after a video of the alleged incident went viral.

Kura Sushi said they “sincerely hope the public has come to know that these acts of public nuisance would constitute a crime and no such acts would be committed in the future.”
