But now, it called “Kodomo-no-hi” (Children’s day) and cerebrate for all children.

On that day, people eat special dishes with their family. Sushi is one of the most famous dish. There are some kinds of sushi like “nigiri-zushi” (hand-shaped sushi), “maki-zushi” (rolled sushi) and so on…. Do you know a kind of sushi called “temaki-zushi”?
