When it comes to game-changing foods, no one does it quite like the Japanese. The country has been known to produce some pretty insane items ranging from all-black-everything burgers to ramen-flavored ice cream.  Now, the Japanese food revolution continues, this time with a non-edible art installation in Osaka, Japan that proves food innovation does not have to taste good to be newsworthy.

Starting this October, patrons visiting the Tombori Riverwalk in Osaka, Japan can watch gigantic plastic pieces of nigiri make their way down a river in a new sushi-themed art exhibit. The larger-than-life sushi conveyor belt project, titled “Rolling Sushii,” appears to be straight out of a dream.

Back in 1958, Osaka housed the first-ever conveyor belt sushi restaurant, making the art exhibit the perfect ode to the city’s sushi history.


According to Rocket News 24, you can spot the the fish-topped-rice parading down the river every day from Oct 3 through Oct 17, in the morning from 9am until 10:30am, and then again in the evening from 10pm to 11pm.
