from Asunaro [takeout]

Futomaki is a Japanese sushi roll. Consists of vinegared rice, plus a hodgepodge of components, typically of the cooked/pickled sort, such as daikon, kampyo, yamagobo, egg, krab stick, and/or shrimp, as well as sakura denbu, all rolled in a sheet of dried nori — very similar to Korean gimbap, except for the vinegar and sakura denbu. In constructing futomaki — the name literally means “fat (futo) maki (roll)” — the sheet is turned vertically to accommodate more stuff.
The futomaki from Asunaro (see most recently 6.267 Chutoro Aburi Sushi) was somewhat bland, but passable.
