A type of Japanese sushi that is larger in size, both length and thickness, than the traditional sushi known as maki. It consists of vegetables, fish (raw or cooked) and seasoned rice that are wrapped in nori (toasted seaweed). Futomaki is rolled into a thick circular, tube-shaped wrap of rice that is sliced into larger rolled portions. The opposite of thick sushi rolls is "hosomaki" which refers to thin sushi rolls, and thus, thin finger-sized rolled portions when sliced.
