Japanese sushi chef Hironori Ikeno really doesn't need much counter space for making his little sushi sets, particularly because each sushi piece fits on top of a single grain of rice.
The concept to make the miniature sushi came about over a decade ago, when he served one of the tiny sushi pieces to a customer as part of a joke. Then, Ikeno began to wonder just how small he could make his sushi and he took to the challenge.
The itty bitty sushi takes a whopping five minutes for Ikeno to prepare, which is actually way more time consuming than regular sized sushi, that only takes up a minute of his time. Now, Ikeno only makes the novelty sushi bites for children, couples and foreigners when they come to visit his Nohachi restaurant in Tokyo.
