When it comes to sushi, it's always maguro (tuna) that gets the spotlight. But if you ask any Japanese which type of sushi they eat more often, chances are that sukeroku will be their first choice, despite the fact it doesn't even feature fish. This is why Kameyama, Japan's leading candle maker that specializes in (among other things) food-shaped candles, has created the Sukeroku Sushi Candle Set.
Like all the maker's candles, the attention to detail in the Kameyama Sukeroku Sushi Candle Set is amazing: the texture of the fried tofu in the inari sushi and of the omelet, cucumber, and kanpyo (gourd shavings) in the maki sushi is so real that you'll want to touch them to make sure they aren't actual sushi. Even the pickled ginger on the side looks real! As candles or just as decoration, this set named after one of kabuki's most beloved characters is a true symbol of Edo (old Tokyo)!
