For the Best Rice Bowls in Japan, Try Majidon, Using Minami-Uonuma Rice!

Mention Minami-Uonuma in Niigata Prefecture, and rice will come to the mind of most Japanese. Minami-Uonuma Koshihikari is famous as Japan's top brand of rice, prized for its exceptional taste. When it was suggested that restaurants in this town make their biggest rice bowls made with Minami-Uonuma Koshihikari, top-class chefs rose to the challenge, offering their own versions of Majidon, or "serious" rice bowls! Why not go there and savor these special rice bowls, made with the abundant produce of the mountains and the seas that surround Minami Uonuma?

Below is the official Web site, introducing a variety of Majidon rice bowls to try!

Japan's Top Koshihikari Rice and Japan's Top Majidon Rice Bowls

Sixty restaurants are participating in the Majidon Project, offering a total of 66 different rice bowls, with prices ranging from ¥600 to ¥3000. Although the bowls offered by each place are made with the freshest, most carefully chosen ingredients, their prices are cheap so the cost performance is excellent! You can taste the true desire of each chef to offer the very best in every dish!
Along with their taste, their appearance will whet your appetite! These rice bowls are Instagram-ready!

Now, I'd like to introduce some rice bowls that are gathering attention!
