In 1993, I, Noriko Kuwabara, started making sushi clocks. I thought I could just buy small sushi pieces and glue on a sushi tray, but there was no such luck. So, I ended up making every piece by hand. Then the idea for a Dim-Sum clock came to me, and a friend of mine gave me the idea to create a Manju clock. Then, I created a Donut clock.
