Japan’s Longest Sushi Roll

Back in February of 2011, the city of Kesennuma in Japan was struck by the devastating tsunami that took out much of Tokyo. In 2014, after several years of rebuilding, the city was ready to once flex its muscles and show off its indomitable spirit. They accomplished this by reclaiming the record for the longest sushi roll ever created in Japan.

Approximately thirteen hundred volunteers, including both residents and tourists, turned out one Sunday morning at a local fish market. Together, they took one hundred eighty seven pounds of tuna fish, twelve hundred pounds of sushi rice, and seventeen hundred sheets of nori seaweed and assembled them into a single, prodigious tuna roll. The final product measured three hundred twenty-two meters, or about one thousand feet, long.
