What is Kazarimaki-sushi?

Ornamental sushi is a sushi that was born from the unique development of one of the Edomae sushi techniques, "crafted sushi," and the Chiba prefecture's local cuisine, "taimaki sushi."
Since the beginning of the Showa era, various crafted sushi have been exhibited as reference exhibits in the world of sushi restaurants at technical competitions.
One of them was sushi rolls with flowers, patterns, family crests, and traditional Japanese classic patterns called crafted rolls and sushi rolls.
Originally, it seems that the family crests and patterns of the customers who are good at it were wrapped. It was especially popular among the craftsmen in Kyoto. There are many exhibited works in the newsletter of the craftsmen's union at that time.
Kazari sushi refers to various creative sushi made at sushi restaurants such as sushi, chirashizushi, maki sushi, oshizushi, and bar sushi.
Kazari-sushi, which adds glamor to event venues and party dining tables, is very pleasing. Kazari sushi is fun to eat and delicious.
"Ornamental maki sushi" refers to thick maki sushi among these creative sushi.
