In Japanese, “hikari” (光) means “light”. Isehikari rice is consequently “the luminous rice” or the “miraculous rice”. This designation was chosen in 1989, when 2 typhoons hit the paddy field of Ise Jingū and destroyed more than half of the land. In the aftermath of the storm, only a few rice plants survived, and were given the name of "Isehikari".
Isehikari rice is cultivated with 50% less pesticides, herbicides, and insecticides than its competitors. Moreover, the vacuum packing will keep the rich and unique taste of your rice for a significantly longer period of time. Compact and design, you can carry it everywhere with you !
Finally, you won’t need any gift wrap to offer Isehikari rice: the traditional Japanese mizuhiki (decorative Japanese cord) is already printed on the package !
TOMO Isehikari sacred rice is used at the Japanese restaurant "MC by Kodera", which is one of the official suppliers of the Monaco Royal Family.
