A sweeter premium rice from Toyama.

Try a slightly different flavour of rice with this 1kg bag of Koshihikari white rice. Grown in Nyuzen, an area of Toyama prefecture famous for its pure and fast flowing fresh spring waters, this Japonica rice has a unique flavour slightly sweeter than other Japanese rices, as well as the slightly sticky texture typical of Koshihikari rices. Use to make sushi or serve on the side of other Japanese dishes.

ITEM ID: #6374

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.
