Rice is an essential food for the Japanese. Not just a side dish, rice is as important as the rest of the meal. More than 300 varieties are grown, but those that are short-grained and high in starch are preferred. Japanese consumers take their choice of brand seriously and are prepared to spend money on expensive rice cookers to get the best results. For the Japanese, cooking the right rice perfectly is a passion.
