If you’re short on cash in Japan and don’t mind doing a little bit of traveling by plane, a peculiar job offer may be the small break you’re looking for.
A job listing for someone to fly from Okinawa to Tokyo twice a day to deliver a pork and egg onigiri recently caught the attention of Twitter user @Fx1jp, and he quickly shared it online with his followers.

The original job listing as translated by local Japanese–language media wrote: “This is a small job where you will deliver a package between Haneda Airport and Okinawa Airport. You will buy a ‘pork and egg onigiri’ to the right outside the arrivals gate at Okinawa Airport, then deliver it to Haneda Airport.”
The person also specified that two plane trips would be required, and added that it would take up to 12 hours in total.
The prospective employer also offered a price of 15,000 yen (around NT$3,840) for the future delivery person’s inconvenience.
According to local news media, the specific pork and egg onigiri in question is likely that from a store at the airport called Potama.
The store has since responded that they have yet to receive such an order but urged the employer to come and enjoy the onigiris in person as they are best served hot.
