What is Ichibutsuki?

It must be made clear that Ichibutsuki is not a type of rice, like Koshihikari or Shikuyutaka are. But it is rather a way the rice is milled by the milling machine. This requires certain knowledge and knowhow to prepare Ichibutsuki correctly. Basically, any type of rice can be milled into Ichibutsuki. We prefer to use Koshihikari or Shikiyutaka, which are soft and chewy respectively and have amazing texture. If properly prepared, Ichibutsuki is amazing rice giving mochi like flavor with subtle yet constant sense of sweetness and aroma.

Ichibutsuki is carefully milled rice with super health benefits. This rice can only really be bought in Japan at so-called Rice Shop, which are run by Rice Masters. These people have exceptional knowledge about rice, its cultivation, milling, mixing, and cooking, which comes from long experience dealing with rice and its many different types.

Ichibutsuki rice is carefully milled Japanese rice, specially milled only to 10%, to keep all the health benefits that can be found in the bran. The bran contains about only 8% of rice kernel. However, it is in this part of the rice that you can find as much as 75% of all nutritional benefits of rice. This is probably why many people who are careful and serious about their health and try to give their body maximum nutrients, vitamins, minerals, and dietary fiber opt to eat brown rice. However, brown rice is not as tasty as white rice. It is also quite difficult to cook especially for those who have very little experience with rice and its preparation. Therefore, we offer a

golden compromise where we mill the brown rice only to 10%. The bran is only slightly removed while 90 percent still remains. This basically means that all the nutrients which brown rice offers, can also be found in Ichibutsuki with the difference that Ichibutsuki can be cooked as white rice.

How to cook rice

1. We recommend washing brown rice with slight force under cold water to slight scratch the outer layer of the rice. This will help water to come into the grain and will help it to expand as well as get sweeter.

2. Once brown rice is washed, please put in the pressure cook or stainless pot. For 150 grams of brown rice, put 250 ml water. For 300 grams, 500 ml. For 450 grams, 750 ml water for best result.

3. It is highly recommended to let the brown rice sit in cold water for at least 6 hours, preferably in the fridge.


4. When cooking in a pressure pot, let it cook for approximately 10 minutes until the steam starts coming out, then put on medium mild and cook for another 10 minutes. Turn off and then let it sit in the pot until all pressure is gone. When cooking in a stainless pot, please follow the same step from 1. to 3. and then start cooking in high and once boiling turn down to medium and cook about 25 to 30 minutes. Then let the rice sit for another 10 minutes.

5. Brown rice should be cooked and ready to serve. Please enjoy our rice.



Rice should be stored in a cool and dry place. Avoid sun, water and moisture. Rice absorbs the smell of fish and meat, and should be stored away from these.
