米 Kome Part II

In September when I returned to Kyoto my friends gave me a 5 kilo bag of rice as a sort of house-warming gift for my new pad in Katsura.  I was happy to get this.  But at the same time I thought, 5 kilos?  This will last me a year!

I just made my last bowl of rice from this large bag.  

Japan's annual per capita rice consumption is more than 61 kilos.  I don't think I'll hit that mark, but I am surprised how much rice I eat.  Like any Japanese household it has become a staple for me.  A day without at least one bowl of rice is rare.
