Is this fake sushi?

No! It wasn't meant to be a faux-sushi. Sushi usually comes with rice and at least one more ingredient. Nori, that green thing made from seaweed, doesn't make something sushi. In fact, nori can be eaten by itself -- the Koreans love it salted a bit, while the Japanese like it as it is. It can also be used to top rice in bento meals, or even soba or udon dishes.

What this is in the photo is a rice cracker (senbei) that just happens to have nori. It's totally different from sushi. Senbei, though, is typically round and flat, but they now also come in other shapes and sizes. Like that one in the photo.

You've heard about Google and can read, right?
