  • Our concerns

    Organic pesticide-free farming

    We insist on pesticide-free farming to reassure safety and security for our rice. Our attempt is qualified by the organic certification from Japan Agricultural Standards(JAS) which requires three years of pesticide-free cultivation, in addition to their yearly inspections of the field, the materials and the process of production.

    Abundant and pure water

    For our agricultural water, the water from the source of the Kuma river, one of the three major torrents in Japan is used. Clear and good quality water moistens the fields throughout the year.

    Healthy soil making

    We use the soil in which the rice straw after the harvest has been returned for many decades and made back to earth. To make healthy soil, organic fertilizers and green manures inherited from our previous generation are used instead of chemical fertilizers.

    Temperature control to preserve the taste

    To preserve the flavor of the new rice, storage temperature is controlled throughout the year. Because of this, we can provide the fluffy and slightly sticky food texture of good rice all year around.

  • How to Cook Rice

    This quick and easy steps help you cook fluffy and tender rice.

    Ingredients

    • Rice 300g
    • Water 400ml

     

    Directions

    1. Rinse rice with cold water for a few times, then soak it for about 30 minutes. This will make the grains less brittle and prone to breakage.
    2. Using the sieve, drain the rice well.
    3. Prepare a heavy-bottomed pot with a tight-fitting lid, and combine 400ml of water with rice.
    4. Cover the pot with lid and keep the heat high to let the water boil.
    5. After the water boils, lower the heat to a simmer for 10 minutes. If you want to make sure if the rice is fully cooked and the water is absorbed, just lift and replace the lid quickly.
    6. Remove the pot from the heat and leave for at least 5 minutes to 30 minutes with the lid on. Remove the lid, gently mix the rice and serve.
