Now I absolutely love sushi and sashimi. I'm thinking this should be safe, except for the big unknown of the soy sauce. Oterwise I think the rice and the fish gets marinated in rice vinegar or something like that, and the wasabi I imagine is probably not tainted, it is some kind of ground-up root I think. Perhaps someone knows?
I'm thinking I could smuggle in a very small bottle of my own soy sauce and surreptitiously use that.
My kids love other japanese fodds, it might be one of the few places we can all eat out together that is okay for me.

The fake crab almost without exception has wheat. Anything marinated, like the eel, will be marinated in soy sauce. Some brands of the orange fish roe have wheat.

I usually order rolls, sashimi, and nigiri. No "krab" and for me, no shellfish, but I definitely eat tons of the wasabi and pickled ginger is a natural for folks with stomach problems!

My rule of thumb is to be very careful about reading the ingredient list in the particular role. I usually cross california rolls off the list unless I can confirm they're made with read crab, not fake. (Standard california rolls are made with fake crab - it has a stronger taste; real crab often gets drowned out by the other flavors.) I also avoid anything with a sauce or marinade.
Wasabi is usually gluten-free, and I make the assumption in restaurants that it is, but in the grocery store, please check the item you get. One or two do have modified wheat starch. Pickled ginger - assuming you accept that distillation doesn't allow the protein particle to pass through to the final product - is also safe, assuming no additives.

They use a mix. I know the mix has some type of starch, but they vary.

Some eel can have soy, possibly Kikomann, containg wheat.
A nice dish is Chirashi, which is a flat bowl of rice with sashimi, roe and vegs. Ask for no crab and no eel. Usually very nice bargain, most places I've been.
Careful of other sauces like eel sauce and ponzu sauce.
