It's been hot last a few days like summer came back.
This weekend I saw many people harvesting rice in Keihoku.
We have beautiful water form upper Katsura river so Keihoku rice tastes beautiful.
Mostly farmers use a combine harvester to harvest rice.
It combined rice harvesting and threshing.
When I grow rice before I harvested by hand and took us for 3 days to just harvest by five of us.
But combine harvester could do this for just 2 hours.
It's hundreds times faster than hands.
I like the classic style but if everybody does that way, the price of rice would be double or triple or more.
I heard natural sun-dried rice has a bit better taste.
But it takes time and difficult to keep the quality.
Another 2 weeks、Keihoku rice would be available on markets.
We could find them in woody Keihoku.
Please try it so good!
