Arataya is now offering leather onigiri holders. Held closed by a metal snap, the open-ended holsters allow you to carry your triangular onigiri in a stylish way, protecting it from getting smushed while still letting the corners maintain their crisp angles.
Each holder is handmade, and sized to perfectly fit the standard-sized onigiri sold at convenience stores and supermarkets across Japan. Priced at ¥4,200 (US$36), each is equipped with a buckle to let you clip the holder to a backpack for easy access when hiking through the wilderness or exploring the concrete jungles of Japan’s major metropolises.
