On the way to Momo’s preschool, we pass by the local sake brewery. Do you like sake? I just socially have sometimes, but I wish I could taste it, and I must be happy to have such a traditional sake brewery near my house.
These two pictures were taken a week ago, and the rice field in front of the brewery was dug over to prepare for planting rice. However, this morning, I found the baby rice were planted and the field was filled with water. It’s seasonal sight of the rainy season in Japan.
This rice is called ‘Yamada Nishiki’ . You know sake is brewed from rice, and average sake can be brewed from normal rice that means the rice we eat for diet, but yamada nishiki is famous for some distinct high quality sake. Moreover, it’s mainly grown in Hyogo(his origin) where is my prefecture! It’s news for me! I found it while I googled about yamada nishiki as I don’t know much about sake. Oh boy, I gotta have it!! I should have its beginning from amazake.
P.S. two and half months later, the rice grew high! →★
