What the food looks like inside the beautiful wooden box.
Trout placed over sushi rice, wrapped in bamboo leaves and fit into a shallow ceder cylindrical container. Then it is weighted down for a set time.
This was my Japanese sons lunch on the local train from Toyama to Kanazawa.
I have the lovely ocean view paper wrapping framed and hanging in my pantry.
I have eaten the special Oshizushi (pressed sushi) covered with Persimmon leaves from Nara.
