"Onigiri" Rice Balls

Bookmark and Share
Onigiri (お握り or 御握り; おにぎり), also known as omusubi (お結び; おむすび) or rice ball, is a Japanese food made from white rice formed into triangular or oval shapes and often wrapped in nori (seaweed). Traditionally, an onigiri is filled with pickled ume (umeboshi), salted salmon, katsuobushi, kombu, tarako, or any other salty or sour ingredient as a natural preservative.

Jun 121+1=3? Not in Japan's 'Galapagos' phone market (Wall Street Journal)
Japan's mobile phones feature breathtakingly sophisticated technology, and the offerings from Toshiba Corp. and Fujitsu Ltd. are no exception. But simply combining their handset operations may not be enough to gain a global presence. Toshiba and Fujitsu, industrial electronics conglomerates whose products range from air conditioners to semiconductors, are in talks to merge their mobile phone businesses, according to a person familiar with the matter. The news was splashed on the front page of Japan's Nikkei business daily, with the joint entity expected to be the second biggest player in the country's saturated mobile phone market with a 19% share - trailing only Sharp Corp. But missing is the fact that the two comprise less than 1% of all the handsets sold worldwide - an indication that this deal would create another big fish in a small pond.

Italian-style fish dish easy to make / JAPANESE HOME COOKING

Acqua Pazza, meaning crazy water, is an Italian recipe where fish, whose skin is crisped first, is cooked in water.
"By using a whole fish, you get the flavor from the bone that you can't get from fillets," says cooking expert Masayo Waki.
She suggests braising fish instead of boiling it so it comes out soft and juicy. White fish in season such as sea bream, flatfish and rockfish suit the dish. Fillets may be used for larger fish. Serves four.
