Product Name: Masuno-Sushi
Raw Materials: rice, trout (salmon), vinegar, salt


A long time ago, when I was traveling in Hokuriku, Japan, I saw the Masuno-Sushi novoli in a service area of a highway. What's that? Just as I was thinking about it, I saw a lot of customers spreading Masuno-Sushi all over the service area, spreading their bentos and eating them all.

When I looked at it, it looked like pressed sushi in a thin wooden vat made of bamboo. No, it's a field I'm not very good at, but I thought I should try it. I did and ate it and it was so delicious. So, as I remembered, I went to eat again this time.

Oh, it's just a white box with the word Masuno-Sushi written on it, so it's hard to tell what's inside...

So, the Masuno-Sushi has a wooden lid tied tightly with rubber, and it seems to be pushed until it's about to be eaten. When I removed the rubber and opened the wooden lid, the smell of vinegar-meshi wafted around, whetting the appetite of people all over the place. At first glance, it may seem like a gross dish, but when you try it, it's an elegant oshizushi with no habits and a surprisingly sweet taste.

It is the second time this time, but it is still delicious. When you come to Hokuriku, you can't help but eat it!

Also, this Masuno-Sushi is designed to be cut into pieces with a plastic knife. And though it may be hard to cut, it is surprisingly clean and easy to cut like a pizza.

By the way, I heard that there are about 20 Masuno-Sushi restaurants in Toyama, so I guess they must have many different flavors of Masuno-Sushi.
