This is a “candy pack which contains six ‘sushi-shaped candy’ candies” which won the first prize in the “Charming Japanese Souvenir contest” hosted by Japan Tourism Agency.

The size is only 3.5 x 3.2 x 0.8 inches, so it is small and portable.  It is inexpensive and handy, and looks like real sushi, so you might want to pick it up and put it in your mouth.

This Sushi bento is also made of candy, too. It is the same size as a business card.

Of course those don’t have a taste of sushi.  those are hard sweet candy. Please don’t be deceived. Japanese loves to make trick sweets like this!

I love such a fake trick, too.
