Let’s make musubi! A Hawaii staple and an iconic Japanese food, musubi are beloved for their simplicity, portability and satisfying blend of tender rice and savory fillings. In The Musubi Book, Hawaii’s premier musubi maker, Manabu Asaoka, introduces the history of musubi, their cultural importance, surprising statistics, essential tools… and, of course, techniques and easy-to-follow recipes to make your own tasty musubi at home!

Manabu Asaoka is the co-owner of Mana Musubi (formerly known as Mana-Bu’s), on King Street in Honolulu. His award-winning shop has been featured on Food Network and Travel Channel programs. The shop produces 35 different types of musubi, offering a limited number of pieces each day, which are sold out by lunchtime.
