The Rice ball, or onigiri as it is called in japanese, is a dish that is extremely common to have as a snack in Japan. It can almost be compared to the sandwich that westerners love so much. In essence the rice ball consists of rice, but in the middle of the rice ball it is very common to place some sort of flavoring, like for example dried salmon or preserved plums. Finally dried seaweed is wrapped around the rice, in japanese this seaweed is called nori, it is usually of the same kind that is used to make sushi rolls, maki.
