Details

An exclusive cube set collection that highlights four varieties of premium Japanese rice sourced by Rice& directly from four notable farmers.

  • Koshihikari is recognized as the king of Japanese rice in terms of its popularity, taste, and production. It features a strong stickiness and sweetness, and is known for its distinct aroma and luster when cooked. Koshihikari makes up more than one third of the acreage of rice in Japan, making it synonymous with the idea of delicious rice.
  • Since its debut in 2017, Konjiki no Kaze has achieved a taste rivaling the finest varieties of rice produced in Iwate Prefecture. This unprecedented rice has the same amylose content as Niigata Koshihikari and the balanced perfection of Hitomebore. Konjiki no Kaze has a fluffy texture combined with a unique, rich sweetness not found in any other rice. It also has a similar stickiness as other types of rice, such as Koshihikari.
  • From simply seasoned dishes to standard Japanese fare such as grilled fish, Hitomebore is the ideal rice. When cooked, Hitomebore is plump with a chewy texture. Additionally, it has an exceptional balance between the five qualities rice is graded on: stickiness, sweetness, luster, umami, and aroma. In other words, Hitomebore is an almighty rice. The fluffy texture and moderate stickiness of Hitomebore will make you fall in love as soon as you taste them, so the rice was named "love at first sight."
  • Yumegokochi translates to โ€œdream feeling,โ€ which reflects the delightfully sweet taste of this incredibly sticky rice. Yume Gokochi, produced in 2006, won the gold medal at the annual Japanese Taste Appraisal Contest.
