Popular round sembei are toasted until a golden caramel color and then dipped into a soy sauce. Only one style is made, shoyu (soy sauce). Uruchimai (rice) cakes are dried for 3 days and then grilled for five minutes. Each day they grill 4,000, winter takes longer to grill. Often the men are in white t-shirts and thin, white cotton pants. “Yakitate” osembei have just been toasted and are hot and the best way to try them. Iriya have been toasting rice crackers since 1914.
