Shinmai Rice

Rice is harvested from around the end of August to October. The rice harvested at that time and then milled and packaged for sale by December 31 is called Shinmai, or newly harvested rice. Shinmai is very plump and moist, and its soft but heavy texture makes it especially delicious. Japanese people appreciate to eat Shinmai for this season. There are about 600 kinds of rice in Japan, and of these, about 260 are produced solely for eating. Others are used to make cosmetics, bath additives and so on.
