Hinode Koshihikari is a premium short-grain variety of rice named after the historic Koshi Province in Japan. The grains are exquisite when traditionally prepared with the proper time and technique. Perfect rice cannot be rushed. This is a variety chosen by chefs for its pure pearly, white color and soft yet slightly sticky texture.

Translated from the Japanese as the “Light of Koshi,” we savor this delicacy in its purist form. There is no need to cover it with seasonings or sauces. It is often formed into rice balls with seaweed, sashimi or pickled plum to make onigiri or musubi.
