comment Is there a word for the type of onigiri that comes in the triangular wrap that keeps the nori fresh?
Round rice balls without nori or with the nori in contact with the rice and thus not moist, homemade riceballs with no filling and no nori.

I have noticed that in Japanese supermarkets and konbinis there will be shelves with round onigiri, with and without nori. Also on the weekend I was given handmade plain onigiri with neither filling nor nori. They were roughly trinangular and individually wrapped in cling film. We were served small sachets of nori separately and ate it alongside canned fish. In Korean supermarkets and convenience stores there are no round onigiri and the closest shelf will carry instead makizushi which in Korean is called "gimbap" (without the "samgak").

@Jason: I don't know. I only know that I eat these things a lot in both countries and in Korea it seems everybody calls it "samgak gimbap" and it is lablled thusly on the shelves and packaging, whereas in Japan everybody calls it "onigiri" and it is labelled thusly on the shelves and packaging. But in Japan I know the term also refers to other things.
