Koso Genmai or Enzyme Brown Rice is a brown rice that has been cooked with red beans and salt and then kept warm to ferment for 2-3 days. The biggest feature of koso genmai is the texture. Brown rice, though hard in nature, can be quite chewy and soft when properly soaked and kept warm for a few days. Truly a great food to eat for all ages.
We would like a lot of people to enjoy this delicacy, especially those who are careful about the health of their family, want to take care of their skin, and many others. With this intention in mind, Kawashima The Japan Store has carefully packed koso genmai so it is ready to eat without hassle.
This product is loved in Japan, that we’ve already sold about more than 50,000 packs of koso genmai.
Koso genmai is aged at low temperature to improve the nutritional value of brown rice. Plenty of nutritions are packed in this food such as vitamins, minerals and amino acids, dietary fiber, and GABA.
We recommend koso genmai especially to those who want to improve their health even though they are busy and to those who want to improve their digestive system.
All of the components are combined from the best ingredients that are loved by Kawashima The Japan Store. For the main ingredient, we chose pesticide-free brown rice.
The koso genmai is packed in a single serving pouch, just the right amount for one bowl (150gr). A perfect portion that is easy to eat.
Because it is packed for convenience and delicious even when eaten at room temperature, you can have it everywhere. Not only can you eat it at the dinner table, but you can also bring it with you as a lunch box or rice balls.
Since Koso Genmai can last up to 10 months at room temperature, you can stock it as emergency supply. Moreover, you can also keep it in the office pantry to eat as a nutritious ready to eat meal.

I've tried various things so far, but the taste and texture of this one is the most delicious. Especially after warming it in the microwave, most brown rice generally becomes hard, but the one from Kawashima The Japan Store surprisingly remains fluffy and delicious!
I actually intended to cook it myself, but since I don’t have the container jar to make it I ended up buying it. After eating koso genmai regularly, I have healthy bowel movements everyday and my skin is also clearing up. Amazing effects. Also it’s delicious.
Usually I cook white rice, germinated rice, or other rice myself using a rice cooker. But I eat this when I don’t have time to cook. Also, I can simply eat this for the health benefit especially when there’s nothing to eat at home.
I bought koso genmai to preserve in case of disaster. The taste is very delicious! The cells in my body will appreciate the health effects. Though I can just eat it everyday, since it is a bit pricey for me, I decided to keep it as an emergency food supply. When it’s nearing the expiry date, I’ll probably eat it~

Koso genmai or enzyme brown rice is made from specially cultivated brown rice directly sent from our contract farmer. After that, the rice is cooked pot by pot by skillful workers in a contract factory that works together with Kawashima The Japan Store, and then it is packed into convenient pouches.
By packing it in pouches, we’re able to make this product last up to 10 months at room temperature without using any preservatives or additives.
We don’t use any preservatives or additives to make this product. The ingredients only consist of brown rice, red beans, black rice, and salt (To make the rice easy to take out from the packaging, we use a tiny bit of locally sourced rice oil. All ingredients are purchased from reliable producers that are trusted by Kawashima The Japan Store.
We simplified the packaging because we want our customers to easily use a great quality product. To make the price cheap and encourage our customers to continue buying this, we decided to not use a label for the packaging. That way, we can focus more on putting high quality ingredients into compact pouches.
It’s also recommended by Ms. Miki Maeda, a registered dietitian.
