Niigata faces the Sea of Japan on the west, and surrounded by majestic mountains on its other three sides, lush rice fields fan out over the region's serene landscape.
Shinano River, the longest river in Japan, runs through Niigata Prefecture. The river supplies an abundance of water to rice fields in the region.
The region is known for its severe winters and heavy snowfall. In spring, when the snow from winter melts, the fields enjoy plenty of water from the melting snow containing high oxygen and low pollution.
The climate in Niigata is ideal for the growth of rice, with a lot of sunny days in summer, long day light and a big difference in temperature in day time and night time, which is perfect for the growth of rice.
The geographical location, seasonal trend and climate of Niigata prefecture create a natural environment ideal for nurturing Niigata's exquisite rice.
Among the many variants of Japanese short-grain rice, Koshihikari is the best of the best. Koshihikari rice is so delicious that it is produced all over Japan. But the most popular type is the one grown in Niigata Prefecture.
The name Koshihikari means “light of Koshi”. Koshi is an old province located within Niigata prefecture, and is a stretch of land along the coast of the sea of Japan. Hikari, which means light, refers to the grain’s polish and beautiful translucence.
It is especially loved for its sweet nutty taste and slightly sticky texture, making it best suited for Sushi. When you eat the rice some hours after freshly cooked, like when you bring your lunch from home, it still tastes real good because it does not lose savor and texture even with time.
Try yourself this Koshihikari grown in the renown Niigata Prefecture, and experience the difference from the rice you have ever eaten!

✔ Whole Grain Nutrients
Brown rice is considered a whole grain since it hasn’t lost its “wholeness” through the refinement process. Hence the mineral contents in brown rice is higher and more nutritious, making it a healthier choice.
✔ High in Fibre
Brown rice is high in fibre and can help prevent colon cancer. This can be attributed to the high levels of fibre naturally contained in brown rice. These fibres eliminate substances and toxins that cause cancer, thus keeping them from attaching to the colon wall.
✔ Promote Weight Loss
Given the fibre content, brown rice is the perfect addition to the daily diet for those seeking bowel regularity. In addition, brown rice also makes the tummy feel full which translates to smaller meal portions.
