Kakinoha zushi (“persimmon leaf sushi”) is a specialty of Nara. To make each individual piece, a thin slice of vinegar-pickled salted mackerel is placed on top of vinegared sushi rice and wrapped in a persimmon leaf. This local delicacy is prized for the glossy appearance of the mackerel and the pleasant fragrance of the persimmon leaf.
