御飯團 / Onigiri

Onigiri is translated as rice ball in English, but its significance to the Japanese lifestyle and cuisine in particular is present at every turn. Onigiri are eaten in various situations. In the home, they're made for lunch in everyday life, or for picnics and such. It has been a handy meal for hundreds of years. Traditionally, ingredients which are a little salty or sour are popular because of the taste itself and their 'shelf life.' Pickled ume (Japanese plum), dried bonito with soy sauce and boiled kombu kelp are common ingredients. At onigiri specialty shops, they have signature recipes. At convenience stores, tuna with mayonnaise is popular.
