One of my favorite snacks is Japanese rice crackers, otherwise known as senbei 煎餅. For Today’s Japan Photo, we will be visiting one of these interesting shops in Japan whereby you can find all the different varieties of senbei you can ever eat.
This nicely composed shot was taken by aloalo*. Senbei are usually cooked by being baked or grilled, traditionally over charcoal. While being prepared they may be brushed with a flavoring sauce, often one made of soy sauce and mirin. They may then be wrapped with a layer of nori. Alternatively they may be flavored with salt or so-called “salad” flavoring.
