The miraculous rice from Ise shrine
In the autumn of 1989, the rice field of Ise Jingū was hit by two typhoons. The agricultural land affiliated with the shrine suffered damages, but some rice plants remained.
After this accident, this rice was considered to be the "rice of the deities." In 1996, the rice was shared with shrines across the archipelago and was named "Isehikari" by the head priest of Ise Jingu to commemorate the 2000th anniversary of the shrine.
Isehikari has now replaced Koshihikari rice for the offering of the Kannamesai festival, which is held every year in October. It is also known as the "miracle rice" because of its disease resistance and durability.
