Garnishes

Sushi is normally served accompanied by edible garnishes (tsuma) such as shredded daikon, myoga ginger, perilla leaves and buds, assorted sea vegetables or chrysanthemum. The purpose is not merely decorative, but rather to aid in the deodorization, sterilization, detoxification and digestion of sushi and sashimi, as well as provide scent, spiciness and color variation.
