Isnt making sushi an art? Even more so when it comes to futomaki matsuri zushi, a particular kind of sushi unique to Chiba Prefecture!
Futomaki is a type of Japanese sushi that is rolled into a thick long cylinder. A literal translation offutomaki is “fat rolled sushi“. It is rice and fillings wrapped in dried roasted seaweed (nori), and then sliced into smaller bite sized pieces.
This art of rolling sushi has been passed down for many decades and is enjoyed at special occasions such as weddings, celebration of child birth and funerals among families and communities within the Chiba region.
The special thing about Futomaki sushi is that it's not just a sushi roll, but also a work of art! Futomaki sushi can be made with different motifs, from Sakura flowers to even cartoon pandas and other more complicated patterns!
