Doll Festival Diamond Shaped Chirashi Sushi

Doll Festival Diamond Shaped Chirashi Sushi

This is made in a hishimochi (a diamond shaped mochi cake) shape with 3 different colors of sushi rice. This can be transformed into an extravagant dish to serve to guests just using sashimi grade fish. Make it for Dolls Festival!
