Fun Link Friday: Osaka River kaitenzushi

A group called The Osaka Cavas put on a delicious-looking art show recently in Osaka that featured giant plates of sushi floating on down Osaka’s Dōtonbori Canal like it was any old conveyor-belt sushi restaurant. Is your stomach rumbling yet?


Naturally, this led to a lot of great perspective photos of people trying to grab the giant bites.  The Osaka Cavas promote Osaka culture and arts though public shows and popup art exhibits, and this one was especially fitting since the conveyor-belt sushi concept was created by an Osaka native, Yoshiaki Shiraishi (1914–2001), who was seeking to bolster his sushi business. You can see more photos of the event on the “Rolling Sushi” Facebook page for the project here!

Happy Friday!
