Keep your rice balls safe with Arataya's onigiri holder


No more crushed rice balls

If you were looking for a compact way to bring your rice balls with you, Japanese Leather Items Creator Arataya came up with an onigiri holder that'll keep your rice ball's shape intact. That way, you can enjoy this meal in its perfect form anywhere. 

While this handy dandy onigiri holder costs ¥4,200 (around U.S. $37.31), the item's buckles are made in a way where it'll cover your rice ball from all angles-- aside from it being made of leather. In fact, its shape will match your snack's triangular form nicely. In terms of portability, you can attach it to your backpack or pants while you wander through the outside world-- kind of like a fancy keychain.

At the moment, the onigiri holders are available at Creema, an online store for people to sell their creative items. In some cases, the site ships overseas; however, that depends on the item's seller. Since I'm satisfied with using a lunch bag to bring my food to places, I doubt that I'll find any use for Arataya's onigiri holder. Nonetheless, I find the idea of an item that retains your rice ball's shape to be interesting. I guess it'll appeal to people who want to look good when they're about to eat their yummy rice ball.
