Omura Zushi (Sushi)/大村寿司

 

Omura Sushi, pronounced OmuraZushi, is a variety of oshizushi which is a layered sushi that is pressed into a shallow wooden box. What separates the Omura version from others is the size of the box used and the local ingredients. After layering the sushi, it is then cut into smaller squares. Although the toppings can differ from each family, the main ingredients are vinegared rice; chopped rehydrated dried shiitake mushrooms that have been stewed in a mixture of water, soy sauce, sugar and sake; thinly sliced and slightly boiled seasoned carrots; thinly sliced and seasoned omelet; kanpyo, strips of rehydrated dried gourd; and the signature ingredient, hanpen kamaboko, a steamed fish paste that has been brightly colored pink and green. Other ingredients that can appear are baby bamboo shoot, burdock root, lotus root, and flaked sea bream. OmuraZushi is often served for celebrations or for special guests.
The origin of OmuraZushi comes from 1480, when Lord Sumikore Omura and his worriers recaptured Omura's land from a rival clan under the reign of Arima Takasumi. The townspeople held a huge celebration for his victory. The unique cube shape developed when the warriors divided and cut the layered sushi by their swords.
