What is Onigiri?
Onigiri, or Japanese rice balls, are held into convenient shapes for carrying. “Onigiri” comes from the verb “nigiru” – which means “to grasp” or “to grasp” in Japanese, also known as Omusubi.
Origin of Onigiri
Onigiri dates back a long time in history. Since the Yayoi period more than 2,000 years ago (from 200 BC to 250 AD) people have grasped rice balls from slightly sticky rice.
By the Edo period, Onigiri was used more in fast food and was often eaten by samurai in battle or by farmers as a meal while working in the fields. During the Edo period people started using dried seaweed to surround onigiri and make rice balls sprinkled with salt.
Onigiri was originally made by hand, but under the creative minds and ingenuity of the Japanese, in 1980 the triangular Onigiri machine was born . Until now, Onigiri has always been loved by Japanese people because of its convenience, ease of purchase and ease of carrying.
