RICE THAT SURPASS KOSHIHIKARI AND HITOMEBORE
Since its debut in 2017, Konjiki no Kaze has achieved a taste rivaling the finest varieties of rice produced in Iwate Prefecture. This unprecedented rice has the same amylose content as Niigata Koshihikari and the balanced perfection of Hitomebore. Konjiki no Kaze has a fluffy texture combined with a unique, rich sweetness not found in any other rice. It also has a similar stickiness as other types of rice, such as Koshihikari.
Konjiki no Kaze was named after the Golden Hall of Chusonji Temple, which is a World Heritage Site in Hiraizumi and the wish for good winds. The name also recalls the rich Iwate climate and we hope everyone enjoys this new addition to dining tables everywhere.
MINIMAL USAGE OF PESTICIDE AND FERTILIZER
We've reduced our pesticide and fertilizer usage by over half, compared to traditional rice farming.
