The “Fat Roll”

Futomaki is a term that the Japanese use to describe a certain variety of maki, or roll, sushi. It translates literally to “fat roll”, referring to the greater size of such sushi rolls. Most futomaki is about two inches in diameter, featuring more than one main ingredient. A lot of American-style sushi comes in the form of futomaki, owing to the American preference for bolder flavors. Many states or large cities have a specific style of futomaki named after them, featuring ingredients most characteristic of the area.
