Take Your Pick


Onigiri, or a rice ball, is something every Japanese eats. This Onigiri is a sample in front of the Furikake shop inside Seibu Department Store. Furikake (pronounced furry-cah-kay) is seasoning that we sprinkle on top of rice.

There are a lot of different types of seasoning made from fish, seaweed, eggs, etc. My favorite is the Ume Furikake, which is made from dried plums.

Not yet 11am and I'm already hungry. Furry-cah-kay seems a good choice...

Onigiri! I love them! Once I was in Sweden and I saw some female Japanese tourists sitting on the grass and eating onigiri. I asked them for one in Japanese and they gave me one! We were all surprised - I was surprised that they had onigiri with them and they were surprised to hear a blond guy speak Nihongo!

Very delicious looking rice, reminds me with Naruto, especially the Ramen noodle, :), have you ever posted one about ramen? i'd like to read it.

Warm greeting from Bandung CDP Indonesia. I'm going to put your link on mine if you don't mind.
