In the first place, Onigiri is a traditional Japanese meal(snack). In English we call Rice ball or Omusubi, it is eaten in some situation in Japan. For example, there are in breakfast, lunch and as a snack when we go to a picnic with a family and friends. The center of Onigiri is some materials, like a salmon and Japanese apricot and wrap it with a sheet of seaweed.

 

This store, named Marutoyo, saves the various type of Onigiri about over 40 kinds which has a convenient price approximately ¥200. And more, the size is bigger than others, like Japanese convenience stores. So maybe even though you will hesitate to buy anything, you will be absolutely satisfied. Surely, all of Omigiri are made in this store by the experienced staff in the morning. Most of repeater like a picky rice and materials.

 

How do you try it in only Tsukiji?

そもそも、おにぎりというのは日本の伝統的な食事です。英語では、Rice BallやOmusubi(お結び)と呼ばれ、日本では様々な場面で食べられています。朝食や昼食はもちろんのこと、お腹が空いた時のスナック代わりや遠足や旅行に行った際に持っていくことも多くあります。ご飯の中身には、梅干しや鮭といった具材が入っており、その周りを海苔で巻いてあります。

この”丸豊”というおにぎりを提供しているお店のおにぎりの価格は、¥200前後とお手軽で、さらに、サイズもコンビニのおにぎりよりも大きく、食べ応えも十分です。もちろん、これらは全て毎朝お店で握られており、こだわったお米と具材が人気の秘密です。

 

築地でしか味わえない、おにぎりの味を楽しんでみてはいかがですか?
