Are you supposed to eat sushi rolls in one bite?
Both sashimi and sushi must be eaten in one bite. If the piece is too big, do not be afraid to ask the chef to cut it in half for you (although a proper sushi chef would adjust the size of each piece according to the customer).
Is it rude to eat sushi with your fingers?
It is OK to eat nigiri-zushi ( sushi) with your hands. Sashimi is only to be eaten with your chopsticks. Pick up the nigiri-zushi and dip the fish (neta) into your shoyu, not the rice (which will soak up too much shoyu). Gari (ginger) is considered a palate cleanser and eaten between bites or different types of sushi.
