I visited my Home Visit family a few days after Kodomo no Hi (Girls’ day) and we made chirashizushi! It is basically typical sushi ingredients tossed into a wooden bowl and then served with small figures of the Emperor (ojousama) and Empress (odairisama) made with eggs and salmon sashimi. The eyes on both figures are made of sesame seeds and they are ever so cute. Everything is done on behalf of the little kids of the house, that they may grow beautiful and healthy.
