Located approximately a three-minute walk from Jiyugaoka Station, Tamagawaya offer a range of different rice varieties, including white rice, haigamai (rice with the germ), glutinous rice and Thai rice – all freshly polished on the premises. On the right side of the store they offer as many as twenty different varieties of onigiri, with fillings ranging from ume (plum) and salmon, to kyarabuki (stalks of butterbur boiled in soy sauce), sansai wild vegetables, and yamagobo (pokeweed). Made with Niigata Koshihikari rice, onigiri here are plump and soft, and taste great even when chilled. The store operates a self-service style system, in which customers are required to choose their own onigiri and place them on one of the provided trays before paying at the register.
