AUD $29.00 AUD $16.00

Founded in 1882, Kitoku Shinryo enjoys a long history. The company is an established wholesale merchandising firm which has been dealing with rice for over 130 years. As a major Japanese firm, Kitoku Shinryo handles over 400,000 tons of rice annually, distributing across Japan as well as the globe.

Kitoku Shinryo has 5 branch offices and 6 rice milling and grinding factories in Japan; both the Okegawa (Saitama Prefecture) rice milling factory and the Niigata rice flour factory are FSSC22000 (a Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) benchmarked food safety standard) certified, while the other factories are moving toward certification meeting international control criteria. With an average temperature of 24.5°C, long hours of sunlight and large temperature differences between day and night the fields of Niigata pose the ideal conditions for growing delicious rice. 

WA RICE is devotedly grown in Japan by craftsmen who imbue it with the time-honored spirit of “WA” (“harmony”). The shine and luster of freshly-cooked Japanese-grown rice creates a visual enjoyment, the comforting delicate aroma delights the sense of smell, a tactile pleasure emerges from the stickiness and soft texture of the rice on the palate.

Finally, your taste buds are stimulated by the sweetness and umami which expands throughout your mouth as you chew. As freshly-cooked rice appeals to the essential human senses of sight, smell, touch, and taste, enjoying rice on its own generates an ample taste treat.

  • APPEARANCE

    Each puffy kernel of freshly-cooked rice has a glossy shine and luster, and a pure white color reminiscent of powdered snow, features which work to stimulate the appetite.

  • AROMA

    When you open the rice cooker lid, a faint aroma from the freshly-cooked rice wafts through the air and delivers a feeling of comfort. The faint aroma never overpowers, never clashes with other components of the meal. In other words, rice simply harmonize well with all sorts of dishes.

  • SOFTNESS

    As you take a bite of rice, you’ll notice that the rice doesn’t feel overly sticky or chewy. The texture feels smooth on the tongue, while allowing you to enjoy a tender yet sufficiently sturdy consistency.

  • STICKINESS

    Rice stickiness enables perfect shaping into onigiri rice balls or sushi. The springy texture is delightful, and the delicious taste holds true even when the rice cools.

  • TASTE

    The more you chew, the more the sweetness and umami expand across the palate. Savor the delicious taste of this homegrown Japanese rice by taking time to chew and enjoy each bite thoroughly.
