Onigiri ,also named Rice ball , from the Japanese long ago have been a picnic lunch of choice and lunch food. Triangular shape of the outer layer of the seaweed wrapped rice group, which the filling is usually a piece of grilled fish, pickled plum, and so on, producing rice is very simple and very fast, so well suited for take-out food. There is evidence that as early as the Heian period (794-1192), when the soldiers had to carry rice balls in the body, so rice can be said that a long time. The appearance of rice are mostly triangular shape, it does not change. Recently, however, consumption patterns, great changes have occurred. In the past, rice is usually made to the family to enjoy at home, a food, but convenience stores, but now they are the best-selling products, but also some cafes and even rice as their signature dishes.
It has began to change since the 1970s 
Traditionally, the balls the impression that in a group of fluffy white rice, the stuffing may be baked salmon, and seaweed from the mother to place covering the entire rice balls filled up. The convenience store completely changed that scene. Since the convenience store in the 1970s appears, convenience store rice balls to be one of the most important commodity, until today, they still maintain this position.
Since the development of the rice and seaweed separate packaging, can maintain a crisp seaweed, and allows consumers to enjoy the  Onigiri  but not dirty hands, which makes rice balls sold by convenience stores gain favor. The choice of fillings inside the rice balls are also very diverse tastes from foreign countries in which there are many fillings, let this precious little too much Western-style Japanese food. For example, since the introduction of the convenience store mixed with mayonnaise tuna filling flavors, this rice sales performance has been very good. Shops selling rice balls, each priced at about 100 yen (translated by RMB 1 14.82 yen terms, of about 6.7 RMB together), has become an integral part of modern life product.
