Ishikiri Sushi

Japan Heritage
The traditional local sushi with precise blocks of rice is called ishikiri (stone cut) sushi. It was probably eaten regularly by the stonecutters during their days of hard labor. It is always served at various annual festivals on Shodoshima including the Fuigo Festival, Yamanokami Festival, and other events in northern Shodoshima.
