First Sushi-ya in America and the inventor of the California Roll

Michael | Mar 28, 2003 01:22 PM

Hi all!

I'm researching a paper on Sushi in America and remember reading something on how the first Sushi-ya in America was in Little Tokyo. It opened in the mid 60s? I have also read that the California Roll was invented at a Sushi-ya there...

Anyone have any more information???
