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.
