Hatchobori Suzuki Kometen is located less than a one-minute walk from Hatchobori Station, down a side road directly off Shin-Ohashi-dori. At first glance you’d be forgiven for mistaking the shop for a café; however, their main business is the sale and distribution of rice. On the left side of the store, by the counter, they offer a range of different onigiri filled with salmon, ume and okaka (finely chopped dried bonito), kombu, chirimenjako (boiled and dried baby sardines), yaki-tarako (cooked cod roe), and various seasonal varieties. The onigiri here are made with relatively firm rice that’s been pressed together to give a soft and airy texture. On the right of the shop are some tables and chairs, at which, from 11am, the shop offers customers a lunchtime menu.
