When thinking about sushi, for most people Nigiri-zushi will come to mind. Nigiri-zushi is a type of sushi shaped by hands. However, oshi-zushi is also delicious.

Oshi-zushi is handmade, but not shaped by hands. For oshi-zushi, cooked ingredients or fish marinated in vinegar are put on top of rice in a container then lightly pressed.

Oshi-zushi can be bought at some of the station stands. When I take a bullet train from Tokyo to Osaka, I often have it.
