Chop the Japanese leek up finely and put into a bowl of water. Shred the shiso leaves finely and put in water also.
Put some rice into a bowl, and add enough shirasu to cover the surface completely.
Add the well drained leek on top of the shirasu and rice, sprinkle on the sesame oil, drizzle on some soy sauce, add the shredded nori seaweed, then finally top with the shredded shiso leaves and beni shouga pickled ginger.
Add some sesame seeds to finish.
Mix well before eating.

Story Behind this Recipe
When I got hungry one night, I tried making a rice bowl with my favorite things, and it turned out really delicious...
If it's too bland for you, just add a sprinkle of salt. You can add ra-yu hot sesame oil if you like too. If you like sesame oil, please add more than the recipe calls for.
