Some Notes on Rice


Rice store in Minowa

Rice sold and served in Japan are mostly from Japan. At the grocery stores, only Japanese rice is available for local consumers. Moreover, the rice bought from a konbini or served in restaurants is locally produced.  I even saw a sign in one establishment saying they only serve Japanese rice.

All the gohan (cooked rice) I’ve had in there were superior in taste. There is no such thing as inferior rice in Japan, I suppose.

These were my observations in Tokyo…as I have deep love for rice, all sorts of excellent rice.
