if you make your own onigiri or get them from a restaurant where they are made  fresh it should be ok.   in 30 years i have not seen  malt vinegar or ever had problems with the vinegar there. 

usually its all rice vinegar and mirin --  also if you look for a place that has  juwari soba -- 100% soba with no  wheta, thats something you can  enjoy -- just  have your own  sauce  or use  soba yu for the sauce.  when I hike i just bring dried and  fresh fruit and sometime onigiri.    have a great trip



Hi and thanks! Yes, I have learned how to say it, and we will have a native Japanese speaker with us most of the time. 


I have heard such conflicting things about the onigiri... I would love them to be safe because we'll be all over the place and I have a bad habit of getting hangry when I don't eat. Also because they sound kind of fun.... 


The other thing I am concerned about is vinegared rice. Is that only for sushi? And do people know which kind of vinegar they use? 


I am also hoping that the OP found good stuff to carry along, since we'll be hiking some as well, and will need to carry at least the food I know I can eat.

there are  a lot of gluten free foods, you just  have to  becareful at each  place that they didnt use  shoyu (soy sauce)  bring your own braggs  or gluten free soy sauce and you can  have  sushi ( other than the eels and things  coated with  sauce) . Much yuba ( tofu skin) shabu shabu without the soy sauce. Some things are good to stay away from.rice balls  form  7-11 or family mart often  have wheat (Ko-mugi)   if you can  learn the kanji for komugi  or how to pronounce komgui allergy in japanese  it will help you at many restaurants.

never had  any problem with only smoked  salmon.  There are some marinated salmon in packages and dips that have been in soy sauce so you want to  read the ingredients carefully. Lox  and smoked  salmon by itself is fine





is smoked salmon safe to eat
