Don’t miss “shoyu-meshi onigiri” on your trip to Kozushima Island


With the arrival of spring, more and more people visit Mount Tenjo, one of the “100 Best Flower Mountains in Japan.” One of the fun things during climbing is a bento lunch. If you visit Kozushima Island, it should be a great opportunity for you to try the local specialty dish called “shoyu-meshi onigiri.” It is a rice ball made with rice cooked with soy sauce and nori seaweed. This delicious rice ball is available at stores on the island. If you have a large order, please contact the tourist association before arriving at the island.
