While Niigata Prefecture is famous for its best quality rice in Japan, Uonuma region within Niigata prefecture is famous for producing the best Japanese rice among the best.
Located in the south of Niigata Prefecture, the Uonuma region is surrounded by mountains. This give rises to a strategic topography that creates alluvial plains irrigated by the Uonuma River, Aburuma River and Shinano River.
Uonuma region is one of the most heavily snowing regions in Japan. Thus, when the spring arrives, the snow from winter will melt, and the fields enjoy plenty of pristine water from the melting snow. This pure water contains high oxygen level and has low pollution, making it perfect for nurturing the best rice in Japan.
Uonuma is a basin with a big difference in temperature in day time and night time. As the rice must store large quantity of starch to resist the severe climate, it is round and plump.
With all these favourable conditions, there is little doubt in the claim that Uonuma is crowned as the best rice production region in Japan.
Japan Grain Inspection Association has ranked Uonuma Koshihikari “Special A” in Japan’s rice taste ranking for 25 consecutive years. This ranking is the best testimonial for Uonuma Koshihikari’s premiere quality and taste.
