Ginga no Shizuku
Equipped with both a "delicious" taste and a "resistence" to cold weather and disease, it is an original Iwate variety. Grains are very white when cooked with a good balance between stickiness and firmness; the sweet taste fills one's mouth with each mouthful. The Japan Grain Inspection Association recognized its taste and gave it the highest ranking, "Special A."
This rice is good for dishes with a strong flavor as well as soupy dishes such as Ochazuke.
