Japanese grown for Japanese authenticity.

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

ITEM ID: #3011

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.

In my opinion, the very best rice sold by Japan Centre. It has been our household favourite for years. We also bought this when living in Japan. It has lovely firm, short grains, never mushy. Perfect for any type of Japanese cooking.

On my mums recommendation to get Akitakomachi rice! Really worth spending a little more on your rice, its delicious. Didn't think I'd spend as long as I did looking at it before cooking it!

It is tasty *** but you need to eat on the day. Keeping it keep warm function in *** cooker makes the *** a bit dry and tasteless. Better flavour it like fried *** or *** ***.
