You’ve totally seen these, haven’t you? In exchange for a few yen you can indulge in grilled, sauced, chewy balls of rice. It’s like barbecued gum. Gum that doesn’t live for eternity (and beyond!) in your stomach.
I am a huge fan. Go forth and chew.
You should also know that some years ago a children’s song became wildly popular among the Japanese masses. Adults and kids alike. And I was one of them. And for you, I have found this very song. And the LYRICS.
You’re very welcome.
