Not only is Sushi widely popular amongst Japanese themselves, it is also of the most recognisable Japanese Dish globally. Locally in Japan, Sushi are crafted and enjoyed on special occasions, such as festivities and anniversaries.
Sushi – Then and Now
During the Edo period in the 16th Century, “Sushi” was traditionally used to refer to pickled fish preserved in vinegar. It has evolved ever since and today, “Sushi” is now defined as a dish containing rice that has been prepared with Vinegar. There are at least a hundred different Sushi variants existing in the market.
Makizushi literally means “Rolled Sushi” and is usually what comes to mind for most folks when first thinking of Sushi. Generally, the rice is wrapped in Nori seaweed, though many other variants exist where the rice is instead wrapped in thin omelette, soy paper, cucumber or perilla leaves. It is one of the most commonly found Sushi in restaurants and eateries!
Oshizushi translates to “Pressed Sushi”, and is made by layering rice and toppings in a special Sushi press. A wooden mold called Oshibako is lined with toppings and covered with Sushi Rice at the bottom. The lid of the mold is then pressed down to create a firm, rectilinear sushi block. This Oshizushi is then cut into smaller rectangles and ready to be served!
Typically made with fresh fish and sushi rice, Nigirizushi can be translated as “Hand-Pressed Sushi”. The Sushi Rice is hand-formed into an oblong shape using the palm of one hand, and the forefinger and thumb of the other. It is then topped with a swipe of wasabi and a thin strip of seafood, normally Salmon or Tuna.
Named after the Shinto god, Inari, for his fondness for Tofu, the Inarizushi is made by filling a pouch of seasoned Fried Tofu with Sushi Rice. It is a rare homey Sushi we seldom see in restaurants, but find more often in take-out obentos and small Sushi places. Exquisite balance of the Juicy Tofu Skin and the Vinegary Sushi Rice makes it perfect for picnics and tea-time snacks.

Futomaki is a traditional thick Sushi Roll that is typically filled with a variety of vegetables and sometimes include cooked fish like Unagi. All the fillings are cooked and flavored, so dipping in soy sauce is not necessary. Its iconic colours and size makes it an attractive must-have Sushi on any menu. Since a pretty-looking Futomaki can be prepared ahead of time, it is often made for festive events and holidays!
A unique Sushi Roll which has the rice on the outside and the Nori on the inside, this is a Sushi highly popular variant outside of Japan. The exterior is often nicely decorated, either sprinkled with sesame seeds or rolled in fish roe. Uramaki need not be finished in one bite, unlike other Maki rolls, as there are no worries about the nori splitting since it is contained on the inside.
