Photo Journal: Stylish sushi

Pieces of sushi wrapped in colorful persimmon leaves are seen in Sakurai, Nara Prefecture, on Nov. 8, 2017. The pieces were all created by the "Yamanobe" store in the city of Sakurai, which has been making these seasonal products annually since 2006. Each November, the store collects persimmon leaves and then uses them to wrap the sushi. However, a lack of sunlight last month has meant that the color of this year's leaves is not quite as vivid as usual. (Mainichi)
