On June 18, Honda Motor Co., Ltd. unveiled how to make “Ultimate Onigiri, ASIMO Onigiri” on official Twitter and YouTube for the first time in Japan. June 18th is Onigiri Day.
“Onigiri Day” is a memorial day set by Rokusei Town in Ishikawa Prefecture, when the fossil of Japan’s oldest rice ball was discovered in the remains of a pit dwelling in Ishikawa Prefecture. In 2002, it became an anniversary certified by the Japan Anniversary Association.
In the video, ASIMO’s face is well represented by placing seaweed cut into a kamaboko shape on the rice ball.
