Japanese rice for any occasion.

For a rich-tasting, authentic, Japan-grown white rice, Shinmei's Akafuji Akitakomachi is a hard one to beat. Grown locally in Akita Prefecture, this rice is famous throughout the country for its delicious taste and superior quality. Once freshly cooked this rice becomes sticky and chewy and texture while still retaining its shape and moisture. Mould this rice into sushi or onigiri rice balls, or serve alongside other Japanese meals.

ITEM ID: #2265

Background

Rice is the dietary staple of Japan, with Japanese rice cultivation happening all around the country and in other parts of the world. The accepted wisdom is that rice tastes different depending on where it is grown, and Akita prefecture happens to have the clear water, fertile lands and great weathers perfect for producing premium quality, great-tasting rice.

Fluffy, delicately flavoured rice that cooks really easily. Retains moisture well even after one day. Very good quality for the price.

I’ve used this rice in the past, it always comes out perfect. I haven’t had time to test this batch though.

The rice looks different to what you usually get from normal supermarket, oval and glossy white, The cooked texture is a bit sticky but not as sticky as glutinous rice. As ** I eat rice most the day, but it is so much better than the rice from Malay or Thailand. it actually has aroma, it is expensive (3 times more than the usual rice from Asian shop), but I would buy it again.
