If you go back to 1950s, you will find that most of the Americans had negativity towards the Japanese cuisine and culture. The reason behind is, these Americans were a part of the World War II and thus considered the Japanese as their enemy. However, by 1960s, there came in a gradual change in the mentality of the Americans as many food critics, and food journalists wrote about the Japanese delicacies in The New York Times and highlighted the different Japanese restaurants there were based in the heart of the city. Later, in the year 1966, a businessman from Japan named Noritoshi Kanai brought in a sushi chef along with his wife and started a nigiri sushi bar inside an existing Japanese restaurant named Kawafuku in LA’s Little Tokyo. Soon the bar became highly popular amongst the Japanese immigrants, but it could not influence much the Americans. With time Japanese food became a trend, and the Americans started enjoying the raw fish dishes, sushi, and sashimi.
