On the right is sushi made with fugu or blow fish. It is topped with red radish and a green stem. Sushi chefs have to have a license to cut and serve fugu . It can be poisonous if cut incorrectly. On the left is a mound of pickled ginger called gari. During the pickling process, dye is usually added to gari to make it pinker.
