OMUSUBI Cake is a new invention that took Japan by storm when it was first offered in Osaka. The cake has the looks and size of the kind of onigiri, or riceball, you find at supermarkets and convenience stores in Japan. Now, this unique cake is sold for the first time in Tokyo at a pop-up store.

OMUSUBI Cake is a sponge cake filled with flavored cream and wrapped in a black cocoa crepe to give it the authentic appearance of nori seaweed. Only the cheesecake flavor is wrapped in plain crepe to resemble a riceball wrapped in an egg sheet.
