The 6th of July is Hand Roll Day.
It celebrates the cylindrical sushi hand rolls called “temaki” in Japanese.
And, as the name implies, you get to eat it with your hands!
Activities for today
- Have some at a sushi bar or restaurant;
- or, get a kit and make some at home with friends;
- guests can choose their own fillings and roll their own.
