The rice from this store is offered to the gods at Fushimi Inari Shrine.
The the third generation owner of this rice store, established in 1935, is a qualified five star master of rice. The rice we sell in this store is grown by our contract farmers. And we mill the rice every day at our own mill.ing facility to insure freshness. We also sell specialty vegetables and fruit from other parts of Japan, such as mandarin oranges from Ehime and Wakayama, taros from the Ohno area of Fukui, etc. When we find a specialty that local people truly enjoy, we ask them to share a little with our customers.
We provide excellent quality rice and the fresh produce you need to prepare delicious dishes to go with it.
Every Friday we feature a farmer's market with vegetables harvested in Kamigamo, Kyoto earlier the same morning. Our customers exclaim about their freshness and taste. If you love hot rice with a raw egg mixed in, you should know we receive fresh eggs every day from a poultry farm in Tamba. We are a community-based retailer, so we try to deliver the goods to our customers right away after receiving their orders. Since Inari is the god of the harvest, some of our customers buy our rice and azuki beans to offer up at the shrine. We also take rice offerings up to the shrine if you prefer to have your offering delivered.
