How To Make:

Wash and soak kampyo in water for an hour before cooking. Cut softened kampyo into about 8-inch-long pieces. Put dashi soup stock, sugar, mirin, and soy sauce in a medium pot. Put it on medium heat and bring to a boil. Add kampyo in the pot and simmer on low heat until the liquid is almost gone. Cool it. Meanwhile, prepare sushi rice. Beat eggs and sugar in a small bowl. Make a rolled omelet and cool. Cut it into long sticks. Put a sheet of nori on a bamboo mat. Spread 1 cup of sushi rice on top of the nori sheet. Place the fillings horizontally on the rice. Roll up the bamboo mat, pressing forward to shape the sushi into a cylinder. Press the bamboo mat firmly and remove it from the sushi. Cut the rolled sushi into bite-size pieces.
