Japan’s crazy 6,000-calorie sushi roll includes a pizza as a topping

Setsubun is one of Japan’s more unusual celebrations. Held each year in early February, it’s sometimes referred to in English as the “bean-throwing festival,” since you’re supposed to throw roasted soybeans either out your home’s door or at someone dressed as an oni/ogre, which somehow blesses you and your family with good luck in the year to come.

However, you could also think of Setsubun as the “sushi roll-eating festival,” because the more delicious part of the holiday is when you stuff yourself with ehomaki, luxury sushi rolls, while facing whichever direction of the compass divinators have determined to be the “lucky” one for the year.

Most ehomaki contain high-priced ingredients like premium sashimi or shellfish, but Japanese restaurant chain Amataro figures there’s nothing wrong with having both quality and quantity, which it’s delivering with the shocking Akuma no Ehomaki, or “Devil’s Ehomaki.”
