About Rice Ball Town

There are Rice Ball Town in the recesses of the mountains.

Many little creatures are living very happily in the beautiful Town.

Someone has a Donut face, and someone has an Onigiri head. 

Another one has ears like a cat or a tail like a dog.

 They all are a little bit strange, but they are all happy and peaceful.


One girl is reading a book all day long.

Another girl is enjoying a Zombie cosplay.


Some boy is watching stars every night.

 Another boy is playing with insects.


 They all are doing what they want to do.

But nobody doesn't interrupt them.

Because here is Rice Ball Town!!


 When you want to be smiling, ride on a secret-train Onigiri line and visit the there secretly.

They will make your smile with their every style!!
