Milky Queen of Toyama Prefecture !

The moment I've been waiting for for months. Finally, I was able to get my hands on some Milky Queen rice, which by the way is one of best rice grains. In previous articles I wrote about rice grains such as koshihikari, hito me bore, and sasanisihki being the top three most notables rice grains you can eat in Japan. Well, I failed to mention Milky Queen, a rice that's a bit stickier and just as delicious as the top three I wrote about earlier. This rice gets its name from being translucent, thus Milky Queen. This name is also synonymous with the beautiful skin tone of Japanese women or" mochi-hada" or" skin like mochi." By the way, Toyama Prefecture is an awesome place to go for camping and fishing as it has great water and unspoilt nature.
