Rakufumai is a new sake brewing rice that was registered nationwide in 2014. It is a combination of the table rice strain "Dontokoi" and the sake brewing strain "Gohyakumangoku". Sake brewed from this locally cultivated strain has a light and airy quality that brings out the flavors of various spices and herbs to complements dishes.
