Mineral-rich water from the surrounding mountains flows into the bay, which is rich in phytoplankton that Scallops feed on. Their soft sweetness is enjoyed by all who taste them. While of course delicious as sashimi, they are equally tasty in various other dishes, either boiled, grilled or fried, and are adored in countries around the world.
The richly fertile earth of Aomori, situated on the northern tip of Honshu island, is ideally suited for cultivating delicious rice.

Aomori rice is a product raised with the blessings of nature and the loving care and attention of rice farmers. It is a second-to-none product born from the blessings of Mother Nature in this northern land.
