Rice& "88"

Rice is Japan’s most important crop. Known as “88” in Japan and represented by the kanji 八十八, the process for growing rice in Japan is a source of national pride. There are 88 steps in rice growing, and even though farmers don’t agree on what those steps are, the number 88 has become synonymous with rice. Even the kanji for “rice” comes from the number 88! By stacking the two kanji for eight (八) on top of the kanji for ten (十), it creates rice (米).
