Pick up Genki tsukushi
The grain is sticky and glossy, delicious either when it's freshly cooked or cold, and perfect for making onigiri (rice balls) and obento (lunch box). On Chikugo Plain at the end of September in the harvest season, a beautiful scenery of heavily ripened golden ears of rice spreads. With a reputation of good taste which does not deteriorate after harvested until the next summer, Genki Tsukushi was given its name with the hopes of "growing to be genki (healthy) while tolerating hot weather" and "giving genki (vitality) to people who eat it." It is Fukuoka's pride and joy and the rice that we want everyone throughout the country to eat.
