The installation known as Rolling Sushi and part of the Osaka Canvas Project arts festival involves five oversized pieces of sushi floating down a local waterway as if it were the conveyor belt at a local restaurant. All aboard the sushi train?

In fact, despite being water-based, that’s what it’s being dubbed. It is of course, “the world’s first giant floating sushi train,” according to Rocket News 24. The installation went on last week, as they floated the idea to Osaka’s residents. Osaka, incidentally, is Japan’s supposed culinary hub, so it’s unlikely the idea will go under the radar. The official runs are on the 4th, 5th, and 17th October.
