TOKYO | Akomeya Ginza is a place that will make you think about rice in ways you’ve never thought about it before. Many of us treat rice as a side dish, or something that you simply eat as part of another dish but at Akomeya, rice is king. In the store you’ll find an assortment of different premium rices sourced from across Japan, and polished in store. Hokkaido Yumepirika, Yamagata Tsuyahime, Toyama Milky Queen, and Niigata Uonuma Koshihikari are just a few of the varieties on offer, and it’s an eye opening experience when you try some of this rice and realise that the quality of rice you use in your dishes can make such a difference to the final taste and texture.

Along with rice, Akomeya also sells food products (many of which relate to rice of course) from across Japan – mirin, sake, togorashi, condiments and the like. There’s also an entire floor dedicated to cookware and tableware with a focus on, you guessed it, rice related products.

If you’re hungry, head to the back of the store, where you’ll find Akomeya’s restaurant Chubo. We recommend going for one of the set meals, containing an assortment of dishes, all served with rice cooked in a donabe clay pot. When you leave, make sure to buy a few things to take home – for us we always grab the sample rice pack which contains five different varieties of Akomeya’s most popular rices.

Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
