Proud of Their Many Flavors!

The store always has a choice of about 30 different kinds of onigiri, made with a house-blend of rice using Akita-branded rice Akita Komachi. With so many choices to pick from, it's great that the sizes are quite petite so that you can try different kinds.

Impressive Tenmusu!

The most popular menu item is dai-ebi-ten (150 yen), using taisho-ebi, known as one of the larger types of shrimp. It's an impressive piece with the giant shrimp tempura so big it sticks out from the onigiri. The crunchy shrimp tempura is accompanied by a shiso leaf, giving it a characteristic fresh flavor.

Mehari with a Long Lasting Deliciousness

Another popular item is mehari (140 yen), a rice ball wrapped in a salted takana leaf (mustard leaf). The well salted leaf matches perfectly with the simple onigiri! The crunchy leaf wrapped around the freshly made, warm and delicious onigiri can be enjoyed even after some time passes.
