About Japanese Onigiri

Onigiri, or rice balls, are perhaps one of the most commonly known types of Japanese dishes with the longest history. Originating in Japan, onigiri is known to have been enjoyed since the 11th century. Onigiri is made of plain white rice and shaped into a triangular form. Unless it is a shiomusubi, which is an onigiri with no filling, most onigiris have a filling in the center. The fillings range from the most common umeboshi, or pickled plum, to miso and okaka. These days, there is an even larger variety of fillings such as tuna with mayonaise, tarako, shrimp tempura, beef teriyaki, etc. A large selection of onigiri can be found at most convenience stores and are priced anywhere between 100-150yen.
