Sushi Roll Art by Japanese Artist Takayo Kiyota


Illustrator Takayo Kiyota has gotten quite a bit of attention for her sushi roll creations, which she refers to as Nikkori-zushi, or “smile sushi.” As she says in her blog, “You don’t know how the images will come out until you cut the roll open at the end, and the thrill of that moment is almost unbearable!”

Kiyota holds workshops in Tokyo where she teaches other aspiring Nikkori-zushi creators her craft.
