While China has taken measures to completely suspend imports of Japan fishery products since the release of treated water accumulated at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant began, Japan sake from Fukushima Prefecture was lined up at the venue, and legislators were served nigirisushi made with sea bass, flounder, scallops, etc. from the waters near Fukushima Prefecture and Hokkaido.

In addition, Tomoaki Ishigaki, Minister for Parliamentary Affairs at the Japan Embassy, said, "Japan food and Japan sake are very popular in the United States, but we want as many people as possible to know the deliciousness and safety of Japan seafood as well as they are satisfied with their popularity."
