Satisfied my picky wife

So, I am an american, and I was pretty much ignorant to the qualities of rice. For me growing up, it was something to go along with whatever that was placed on my plate as my mother worked, and rice was something quick and filling. Fast-forward, and I am now married to a Japanese woman, and I have learned that they are very particular about their rice. I never knew it was so serious, but I have read blogs and such and it would seem as if, rice is a BIG DEAL. Having being thoroughly schooled on the importance of quality rice, my goal was to be able to purchase a suitable brand without getting killed at the Japanese supermarket. Seriously, rice was going for $50 plus especially if it was genmai. I decided to see what Amazon-sama could do for me and low and behold, this popped up with decent reviews to boot. I purchased the small bag as a test to see if it worthy of the suihanki and it was given a nod of approval. This holds us down in between our visits to Japan when we may get a 5 pound bag of her preferred brand from in which we daiji ni suru, but this works to the point that I have been given the okay to get the large bag.
