As the interest in Japanese cuisine has grown worldwide, so too has the demand for Japanese, or Japonica, rices. These rices are small to medium in grain size and become particularly sticky when cooked, making them ideal for eating out of side bowls with chopsticks, or for pressing into moulded sushi and onigiri rice ball shapes. Take a look at Japan Centre's Rice section for a fantastic variety of Japonica rice, grown in Japan and around the world.
