Chirashi Sushi (we call it Chirashizushi in Japan) is a type of sushi. Although sushi is often misunderstood as just nigiri (a small block of rice topped with a piece of raw fish) or those interestingly named rolls in the US, there are actually many types of sushi in Japan.
Among all types of sushi, Chirashi Sushi is probably the most commonly served sushi in Japanese homes. It literally means “scattered sushi”. Each region in Japan serves a slightly different version of Chirashi Sushi with different ingredients and toppings.
