Gardening like pressed sushi of hors d'oeuvre
Kakinoha-sushi is a kind of pressed sushi and a local special cuisine in Nara prefecture. We put sliced and pickled mackerel (or other fish) over a piece of sushi rice, and then rolled it in a persimmon leaf.
In Nara, we make Kakinoha-sushi as a special meal for summer festivals.
