The theme of Gohan festa is “tasting a new rice of year” at the food festival which is organized by the National Japanese agricultural producer’s organization.
So you can eat NEW RICE AT FREE which is just harvested in Ishikawa prefecture this year. The rice is the highest rank of rice in Japan so it is so fresh, soft but also springy texture and absolutely delicious !
