This special pack of high-quality koshihikari rice may be the definitive way to enjoy one of the most popular japonica rice varieties.

Covered in snow, this natural refrigerator keeps a constant temperature year-round and a humidity of 90% or more, allowing the stored rice to develop its rich, sweet flavour to the purest degree. Ready to eat in just 2 minutes.

Background

Rice is the dietary staple of Japan. Like how many people in Western countries cannot imagine going without bread for very long, the vast majority of Japanese people will eat at least some rice every day. Japanese, or Japonica, rice is grown all over Japan and in other countries, and the accepted wisdom is that the rice will taste different depending on where it is grown. For an incredible range of Japanese rice, take a look at Japan Centre's Rice section.
