Eating Japanese Rice On A Stick

Popsicles, lollipops, corndogs and, as I learned recently in Japan, rice are among the foods that are best served on a stick. Kiritanpo is a local dish found mainly in the Akita Prefecture. Like other Japanese foods, Kiritanpo is simple, traditional and not fussy — the harmony of its flavors and the warming process of making it turn it into an unexpected comfort food.
