sticky rice balls without fillings are also available in japan but is less popular than the famed mochi (or the sticky pounded rice with assorted fillings). the sticky rice balls after being pounded are added with flavor and the falvoring depends on the type of sweets like the macha or sweet tea flavor or the azuki bean flavor or natto flavor and other flavors. this sticky rice ball bought from a konbini costs about 60 yen a pair and comes with assorted flavors and is available everywhere.
