For a truly natural and special taste of rural Japan.

Koshihikari rice is a notably sticky and versatile crop that is grown mainly across the backbone of Western Japan in many styles and varieties to appease its popular demand and with this fluffy Nanatani Tanadamai batch of the rice, the authentic flavour of Japan's serene environment and carefully handled agriculture is able to shine. Grown in Kamo city among valleys nestled away in the Awagatake mountain range of Niigata prefecture, there is both bountiful wetlands with mineral-rich soil and clear flowing water to provide this rice with everything it needs to develop naturally with all the rich character of the region. Using natural fertilisers instead of chemical, every aspect of care is taken by Rice Growers to nurture this crop of rice by hand ensuring the finest quality of glutinous and flavoursome rice, a regional speciality that is ideal for onigiri and sushi with a bold sweetness that really draws out other ingredients.

Background

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.
