My top snack of all time is the onigiri, the rice ball that is ubiquitous in Japan. Students take homemade onigiri to school for lunch. Conbini all over the country sell dozens of varieties, and my personal favorite was the chahan (fried rice) or the shiso-umeboshi (pickled plum) varieties. They are filling and reasonably healthy, depending on the kind you get. Wrapped in nori or without it; with meat, vegetarian, or vegan: there's an onigiri for everyone.
