Akitakomachi is a brand of rice that represents Akita Prefecture, located in the Tohoku region (the north-eastern area) in Japan. It is named after Ono no Komachi, a Japanese waka poet in the 9th century who was from Akita. The grain of Akitakomachi is a little smaller and tastes relatively light. Since it is the cross between “Koshihikari”, with high levels of stickiness and umami (glutamate) and “Ou No.292”, with high productivity and a good resistance to cold weather, Akitakomachi is said to be well balanced in terms of taste and texture. Its mild taste goes really well with a variety of foods. The cooked grain becomes fluffy, looks as if it is lustrous and stimulates your appetite.
Akitakomachi is produced under strict quality control in Ōgata-mura, a village which was developed especially for rice-harvesting and thus has the highest yield of rice in Akita. You can enjoy the tender but chewy texture and odorous flavor of well-reputed Akitakomachi. You can be sure of its safety guaranteed by our annual radioactive examination.
We are looking forward to receiving your order.
