how to wrap an onigarazu

Recreating this brilliant invention at home is really simple. To make a delicious onigirazu, what you need is your favorite filling, a few tablespoons of rice (leftovers also works perfectly), and a large sheet of nori that will add a delicious crunchiness to the final result. To help you, we picked three recipes that will make anyone fall in love with onigirazu!

Don’t hesitate and go wild with the fillings!

After a short practice, you will find that its preparation is not only simple but allows you to play with the combinations of your favorite flavors much more than your regular onigiri. Before showing my top three versions, here are some suggestions that may come in handy if this is the first time you jump into their preparation.

How to build your onigirazu

  • Place the nori sheet in front of you, with a corner in your direction.
  • Place 2-3 tbsp of rice in the middle, pressing lightly to form an evened out square shape. To do this, I recommend moistening your hands so you can handle the rice more easily.
  • Remember to leave a margin around the rice to close our sushi sandwich.
  • Add the seasoning in the middle, and seal it with a last layer of rice. This step is very important. Always remember to add a thin layer of rice between the nori sheet and the filling, or you will risk that the seaweed will lose its crunchy texture.

How to wrap it up

Do you know how to make a present package? The process is the same.

Imagine that the wrapping paper is your nori sheet, and the glue are your hands slightly moistened with a bit of water (if the rice you used is warm, the water won’t even be necessary as the moisture will act as a glue).

Now that we are many months into the pandemic, has anything changed about the way the real estate agencies are operating? For the most part, business has returned to usual, with some adjustments.

Tighter inspection screening

Just looking? Now may not be the best time to be window-shopping in person. For health reasons, some sellers are hesitant to let various people through their home during a pandemic.

It’s important to limit the number of people at an inspection to the decision-makers only, and best to leave the children at home. Find a good agent who can help you research online and community over email or phone to eliminate unsuitable listings and save you the legwork.

Move towards online contracts

Some condominium developers are starting to introduce online contract procedures whereby documents are sent and signed electronically. Some are sending them via post, followed by a video call. For now, this is limited to certain projects on a trial basis.

Virtual showrooms

3D walkthroughs and video conferencing are now in use by the major developers in order to connect with potential buyers online rather than having to bring groups of people through their physical showrooms. This is nothing new in the tech world, but domestic real estate developers have only now started to pay more attention to online sales methods.

Fewer open houses?

Before corona, real estate agencies would have numerous open houses on weekends with a property open to any and all off-the-street visitors from 10am to 4pm. During the peak of the first wave in April and May, agencies switched over to offering inspections by appointment only. Many have stayed with that method, however, despite being in the second wave of infections, other agencies have reverted to …continue reading

Hachimanyama Kosenji Temple is at the eastern end of the Ebino Valley in the higjlands around the Kirishima Montains in Miyazaki. It is number 42 on the 108 Shingon temple pilgrimage on Kyushu.

It is a fairly modern temple founded in the early Taisho era, so is about 100 years old. I’m no expert, but it seems that the Gingko trees were a little older than that.
