Japan’s Osaka River turned into a giant sushi-train for one mouthwatering day

If you like sushi, boats and weird Japanese things, this story is for you.

For one delicious day, Osaka’s Dōtonbori Canal became a real-life sushi train art exhibition.

The unusual art show was put on by a team called The Osaka Cavas, which aims to promote Osaka culture and arts though public shows and popup art exhibits throughout the city.

Huge models of sashimi, avocado sushi rolls and ebi majestically floated down one of Osaka’s main canals to the sound of cheering (presumably hungry) crowds.

It’s fitting to have the sushi trains on one of Osaka’s main canals, as dushi trains were invented in the 1950s by Yoshiaki Shiraishi, an Osaka local, who created them after having trouble staffing his small sushi restaurant. The trend caught on and sushi trains expanded to over 250 stores across Japan.

More hilarious and delicious photos can be found on the Rolling Sushi official Facebook page.
