A rice mill

This is a rice mill in a self-service stand. There are some rice mills around because there are many rice field in the neighbourhood. Today I went there to mill some rice for the first time in my life. The rice is a name-brand “Koshihikari”. It costs one hundred yen(about 1.2 US dollars) to mill a rice up to 10kg of rice. I could choose between ready-to-cook rice and polished rice. My family eat rice two or three times every day. Domestic rice is served on most Japanese tables as a result of an agricultural policy that Japan should maintain her capacity to produce rice.

I live in Kawagoe-city Saitama-prefecture Japan. There are many traditional warehouses in Kawagoe. So many Japanese and the people from overseas come to sightseeing. http://www.koedo.or.jp/foreign/english/index.html

    1. No I do not. I mean that I make white rice from raw rice

      “Refining it involves removing the outer layers, including the husk, bran and germ, leaving the inner white kernel”

      Please make allowance for my English.
      I study English every day.
