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."

Rice&'s Hitomebore rice is harvested in Iwate Prefecture in the Tohoku region of Honshu by farmer Takuya Kawamura. Good rice starts with good farmers, and Rice& sources directly from Japanese farmers who personally tend and manage their farms.
