Why are all the authentic ramen in Toronto so salty?

okay, I guess I'll rephrase the question

Why are all the authentic ramen in Toronto so salty?

I've been to several ramen places that promised authentic tasting ramen, and no matter what I order, the broth always seem to be so salty! Doesn't matter if its miso, shio, shoyu, etc.
Of course this is just my opinion.
Is ramen supposed to be this salty?
Is ramen in Japan supposed to be as salty as the ones in Toronto?
Perhaps this is just an acquired taste...?

Oh yes, the places I am referring to are Kinton, Sansotei, and Santouka

Does anyone else have this problem?

What is REAL sushi?

I live in the GTA and have been to numerous all you can eat sushi restaurants.
I've been to Sushi on 7, Yang's, Syogun, and all those generic AYCE places.
I've tried sushi made by an authentic Japanese restaurant from Konichiwa on Baldwin.
They taste no different.
How would authentic sushi taste like?
Would real authentic sushi "blow me out of my mind because it is so delicious"?
Are there any restaurants in Toronto that serve "authentic sushi"?
