Ishinomaki Rice Debuts in Singapore

By: Qian Leung posted Oct 04th 2017 02:42PM


Located in the northern part of the Miyagi Prefecture of the Tohoku region, Ishinomaki boasts a serene landscape of lush paddy rice fields and surrounding majestic mountains with two first class rivers, the Kitagami River and Naruse River, running through it, enriching its soils. With minimal snowfall in the winter, the region is blessed with a temperate climate throughout the year creating the richest granary zone in the prefecture. This is why Ishinomaki has the ideal climatic and geographical conditions for rice cultivation. This rice comes vacuum-packed after the polishing process to maintain the rice’s balance of stickiness, shine, taste and flavour, thus ensuring its freshness from mill to store. First to be exported outside of Japan, the Hitomebore can be expected in stores of Singapore by the last quarter of 2017.
