Japanese food culture has a strong relationship with rice. During Edo period Japan, the majority of the population consisted of farmers. The people grew rice, ate rice, and payed their taxes in rice. Thus, rice was considered as the equivalent of currency during this regime.
Today, rice continues to be a staple diet of many people in Japan, as well as worldwide. There is truly an abundance of delicious rice-based cuisines. What is your favorite rice dish? At CoCo Ichibanya, we feel that the combination of curry and rice was in fact a match made in heaven.
