This is a Japanese local food - rice ball wrapped with the pickled leaf. It reminds me the food rice or meat wrapped with grape vine leaves. Rice balls are common but the one wrapped with the pickled leaf maybe a local food. Rice balls are easy to carry and good pick-nick lunch as well as switches in Japan. Nowadays, we can buy them at the 24hours open stores. There are much varieties and you can add any relishes as you like. The common relishes are grilled Salmon, Maldive fish, Pickled plum, Seasoned sea-plants, fish-eggs and etc. We had it for the breakfast. It is our signature home food. ;>
