For rice as white and bright as stars in the night sky.

When you're after a rice that reflects the quality and care gone into providing the perfect balance of taste, texture and appearance, Ginga no Shizuku ("Galaxy Drops") sends your senses on a trip of a lifetime. Cultivated in an area high up in mountain ranges of Iwate prefecture, where many fresh springs flow and there's lots of exposure to sun and blue skies, the environment is ideal for growing naturally firm rice that can protect itself well from the colder temperatures and risk of disease. This gives it more time to take in rich nutrients from the mountain soil, giving each grain a chance to truly develop a rich glow and sweetness that can keep it both fresh and sticky over long periods once cooked, perfect for either onigiri or sushi. The light fluffiness of each mouthful offers a wonderfully balanced flavour and texture, that'll leave you dreaming for more with a delicate aftertaste.

VARU-ID: #15101


Rice is the staple grain that has kept Japan going and growing for as long as time can tell. From rice paddies that sit snugly among countryside living, to the endless flow of fast food and bento available in city life, there's rarely a day people in Japan go without enjoyment of rice, up to 70% making it a part of their daily diet. Much like the variety of bread and pasta available in western countries, Japanese rice is unique and varied, with often a sticky and fluffy texture that can subtly carry sweet or even savoury tastes based on which region it is grown, both in Japan and abroad. Using the wisdom of these different qualities, each regional rice becomes ideal for the wide selection of Japanese food and drink, from sake and amazake to onigiri, donburi and of course sushi, so why not check out our wonderful range of recommended Rice at japancentre.com and taste the difference.
