Dehydrated rice, grown in Niigata and cooked using underground water from the Echigo mountain range, suitable for long-term storage. Just pour hot water to enjoy an easily-prepared portion of rice, soft as if it were just cooked! Not only a great companion to mountaineering and camping trips, but also great to store in case of emergency. The package stands on its own, and can be used as its own bowl. Spoon included.
