Inside-out sushi roll nation of origin?

I've read the Japanese term for an inside-out roll is "uramaki" and that it was invented by a Japanese chef in Los Angeles in 1973 to hide the nori since Western palates were not accustomed to it at that time.

Is the uramaki form native to the United States or does it have its origins in Japan. It seems reasonable to believe such a simple item has to be Japanese.

Thank you.
