Reasons Why I Love 日本 #10

おにぎり (onigiri). I saw these being eaten in cartoons and video games growing up--a white rice ball wrapped in nori (seaweed). It wasn't until I came to Japan two years ago that I tried one of these for the first time. The nori took a while to get used to, but I love it now... and, I discovered that there's more to onigiri than just rice--there's something inside the rice ball, too (whether that's fish, chicken, or even plum). This is a very simple snack, easy to do when you're pressed for time, and quite portable--several can make a filling meal.
