Farmer Shigeo Honma's Koshihikari Japanese Rice (2.2 lb)
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.
Even in this distinction, however, some Niigata Koshihikari rises above the others. The Koshihikari from Iwafune in Niigata Prefecture comes from a mountainous area blessed with natural beauty.
Rice&'s Koshihikari rice is harvested in Niigata Prefecture in the Chubu region of Honshu by farmer Shigeo Honma. Good rice starts with good farmers, and Rice& sources directly from Japanese farmers who personally tend and manage their farms.
