The “Minami Uonuma Honkidon” campaign, which started in 2015, is a project with the theme of “things that can only be done in the Koshihikari region that produces Koshihikari, which boasts the best taste in Japan.” We offer large servings of Koshihikari rice produced in Minami Uonuma, which has a strong image of being expensive and rare as a branded rice, with the idea that “we want you to enjoy it to the fullest.”
As a new attempt this year, which is the 9th year, we are holding the event in two parts: “Autumn Maji” and “Winter Maji”. During “Winter Maji,” which starts on December 16th, not only some stores that participated in Autumn Maji will offer new rice bowls, but also new stores such as restaurants at ski resorts will be participating. https://majidon.jp/
