How to Make Makizushi

Everyone like Japanese food, especially any kind of sushi you can get at the sushi bar. If you are a foreigner like me and live far from city that has a Japanese restaurant, craving for Japanese food is the most suffering feeling. And if you are nowhere near a good cook, well makizushi should be your first self-made Japanese food.
