Calling all Japanese-food enthusiasts! Here are 21 next-level pieces of sushi for you to try.

Track down these treats and savor them slowly, because once you develop a taste for silky monkfish liver, creamy crab innards and mouth-puckering pickled plum, it’ll be hard to go back to the humdrum yellowtail nigiri and spicy tuna crunch rolls of yesteryear.
Brush up on your soy sauce application technique and grab a sturdy pair of chopsticks: It’s time to enhance your sushi game in a big way.
