Around 300 varieties of Japanese rice, including organic rice, are kept in stock throughout the year and are carefully chosen by the rice meister himself who travels throughout the rice-growing regions of Japan, studying the climate, cultivation methods and thinking of each rice producer. As a rice professional, the meister asks customers about their taste preferences, dining styles, favorite dishes and other details to help them discover their own favorite rice variety.
