Senior editor Karen Shimizu learned to make these rolls from her California-born mom, who lived in Japan for a year while researching her college thesis on sumo wrestling. Perfect for special occasions, they're stuffed with flaky fish, sweet Japanese omelette, plump shiitake mushrooms, tender kampyo, or dried squash, and blanched carrots and mizuna.
