Buy Japanese Rice Online

On an island nation with limited farmland, have you ever wondered what kind of rice do Japanese eat? Glutinous and moreish, Japanese rice is characteristically plump and sticky with an addictive texture that always keeps you coming back for a second serving. Sometimes called sushi rice or Japanese-style rice, Japanese rice is a short grain rice produced in Japan that becomes fluffy and sticky when it's cooked. Unlike Basmati or Jasmine rice, long-grain rice types that are used for other Asian-style cuisines, Japanese short-grain rice tends to stick together in clumps. This makes it easy to pick up a mouthful of rice using a pair of chopsticks!

For Japanese people, rice is one of the most important staple foods there is and has been for centuries. If it’s not used in Japanese cuisine as a major element of a dish like a hero, Japanese rice is almost always served as a side dish. Japanese rice can be used as a key ingredient in sushi for example, rolled up with fresh vegetables and fine sashimi slices, or used as bed for soaking up Japanese curry with its sauce drizzled over the meat, carrot, and potatoes. Alternatively, Japanese rice is served as an accompaniment to meals, eaten alongside stews like nikujaga or stir-fried vegetables and crispy gyoza dumplings. It’s not uncommon for Japanese rice to be served with a traditional breakfast, plus a side of grilled mackerel and a bowl of miso soup.

There are many types of Japanese rice, but the best Japanese rice is, of course, grown and harvested in Japan. In Japanese, kome means “rice” (as a grain) and gohan means “cooked rice” or a meal. Rice is serious business in Japan, where different prefectures throughout the nation take pride in producing local, superior-quality rice. Grown in rice paddies across different regions featuring nutrient-rich soils and access to high-quality water, there are many competitors when it comes to Japanese rice brands. Most Japanese people have a favorite brand of Japanese rice that they stick to and keep stocked in their kitchens at all times. A rice cooker is almost as important as having a bag of rice from Japan on hand, to cook perfectly while ensuring consistent and delicious results!

If you’re not in Japan, have you been wondering where to buy Japanese rice? Japanese rice is a great pantry item to have on hand to whip up a Japanese meal, or even just a salty snack; tasty and filling at any time of day. Serve it with some spicy pickles or even some shredded seaweed molded into a travel-sized onigiri, or alongside your favorite Japanese dish with a bowl of warming miso soup. Where to start?
