Onigiri (お握り – おにぎり) are rice balls filled with different ingredients, although in shortage time (at the end of the war) they were simple rice balls without anything else. Usually they are filled with tuna, salmon, some vegetable, ume (fermented plum), fish eggs, etc. The other day I found a new kind of onigiri being sold in 24-hour shops, that is filled with Iberian pig meat and costs only 125 yen (1 euro, 1.3 dollar). As a good Spaniard I had to buy it and try it out!
It wasn’t too bad, but it didn’t taste like pork! 😉
