Best 10 Rice Ball (Onigiri/Omusubi) Store in Tokyo


What is Onigiri? It means a rice ball.

Rice balls are made by putting ingredients such as pickled plum, salmon, and kelp into fluffy cooked white rice and making a triangle or round shape and wrapping it with seaweed.

It is now sold in the delicatessen section of supermarkets and convenience stores and can be said to be one of the representative foods in Japan.

There are shops that specialize in rice balls with particular ingredients; so it is an important dish for Japanese.

I would like to introduce a really delicious rice ball specialty store in Tokyo where I want to eat a lot of rice balls.


This is a rice ball specialty store that has been open for 40 years.

This shop sells about 4000 Onigiri a day.

Surprisingly, it is not a machine but a rice ball which is all held by hands, so the hardness of the rice ball is very well balanced.

It depends on the day, but about 40 kinds of Onigiri are sold.

Onigiri of “Eggplant miso” is said to be famous.

The combination of miso and rice with the taste of the old days is superb.


It looks small, but the taste is strong and the ingredients are big, so it is more filling than I thought.

It is true that this is a level that cannot be compared to rice balls in convenience stores and I can fully understand that it is thriving.
