How to Make Sushi

Set the sushi topping in the special capsule.

Use the spoon (provided in the kit) to scoop the rice, shape and place on top of the sushi topping that you set previously.

Place the plate over the rice and push the head of the cat, Sushimaru who is in the center! This will spin the sushi that is in the larger tray.

And there you go; you get 6 pieces of cute bite-sized sushi!

Tuna, salmon, squid, shrimp, octopus, you can make any sushi you like.

If you also use seaweed, you can make not only the nigiri type of sushi but a gunkan style sushi like ikura (roe) and uni (sea urchin).

Get the whole family together, invite lots of friend and have a sushi party!


It’s small and cute; it looks similar to the Temari Sushi of Kyoto: Temari Sushi: Sushi Made for Geiko and Maiko of Kyoto
