Have you heard the news? Massive plates of sushi are being sent floating down the Dotonbori Canal in Osaka Prefecture!




It’s called “Rolling Sushee” and was chosen as one of the 2015 works for the Osaka Canvas Project, which turns the streets of the city into a medium for artistic expression as a way to create and convey a new kind of Osakan charm.

The video shows a trial run of the event. The actual performance itself is scheduled to be held at two different times on October 17 (Sat.): once between 9:00 and 10:30 and again between 22:00 and 23:00.
