One cloudy day in Tokyo, Japan our family planed to go to long drive; on the way it was snowing and the plan was to visit Fuji san, but due to Covid-19 it was closed. We visited nearby park of Fujikawaguchiko, enjoyed a lot of snowfalls. We took so many beautiful photographs of our life-time memories.
There was excitement all around, we headed in a Japanese restaurant for lunch and ordered Inari sushi, authentic and delicious; and that’s the moment I decided to prepare and upload the “Inari sushi”.
In my opinion it is one of the easiest sushi to make at home, it is vegetarian and one of the popular sushi for bento box, picnic and for afternoon breakfast too.
Enjoy the bite of deliciousness…
