Premium rice from Niigata.

Make one of the most important parts of every Japanese meal as authentically delicious as can be with this Akafuji Koshihikari rice. Grown in Niigata, one of Japan's premiere rice-growing regions, these short, firm grains of rice have a fluffy appearance and sticky, chewy texture when cooked. Enjoy making amazing sushi or onigiri rice balls with this rice, or alternatively serve with other Japanese foods such as karaage chicken or katsu curry.

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.

Excellent taste cooked a simple rice meal with beef stew. Little expensive but worth it.
