In February of 2011, when the tsunami struck Tokyo, the community of Kesennuma was likewise devastated. Three years later, after the community had managed to recover from the worst of the disaster, the people of Kesennuma were ready to celebrate their indomitable spirit. To show off this spirit to the world, they banded together to reclaim the record for the longest sushi roll ever rolled in Japan.
To create this roll, three-hundred volunteers came together one Sunday morning at the city’s fish market. Among the volunteers were both local residents and tourists. They used one hundred eighty seven pounds of tuna fish, one thousand two hundred pounds of sushi rice, and one thousand seven hundred sheets of nori, combining them all into a tuna roll that measured three hundred twenty-two meters long.
Though you will probably never find anything quite as prodigiously large at our Japanese restaurant in Lynnwood, you can always count on an impressive dining experience. Come and try some of your favorite sushi and other classic Japanese dishes at Wild Wasabi today!
