Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the largest sushi mosaic: 20.13 m?(216 ft 97 in), achieved by the Norwegian Seafood Export Council (Norway) with the help of the student chefs from Zhonghua Vocational School in Shanghai (China).
The World's Largest Sushi Roll prepared at this unique establishment is called the "Generous Roll" and contains 24 tasty ingredients, including a variety of fish and seafood, vegetables, rice, all laid out on a 2-meter-long piece of dried seaweed.
It weighs almost 6 kilograms, reaches 25 cm in diameter and needs to be ordered at least 2 days in advance, for ¥15,000 (196.69 U.S. dollars).
At Umewaka, everything from the futomaki roll to the nigri zushi comes in super-sized servings no one man could hope to finish in one sitting.
For the same price, you can also order a giant set of nigiri sushi (together with a super tiny set). The slab of tuna on top of one blob of rice could make about 40 normal-sized maguro nigiri-zushis. Related world records: Largest Sushi Mosaic: Norway
