    The port city of Kure has created what it claims is Japan’s biggest futomaki sushi roll:

    Volunteers wrapped nori around about 1.1 tons of vinegared rice, carrots, and shiitake mushrooms to create the massive roll. It was then sliced and served to about 2,000 people.

    The roll was 21 meters long, approximately the same length of 40 cm/45 Type 94 naval gun of the famous battleship Yamato, which was laid down at the Kure Naval Arsenal in 1937. The roll had a diameter of 31 centimeters, making it not quite as wide as the Yamato’s gun. The Yamato museum is one of Kure’s main tourist attractions.
