Ono Pure Water Restaurant
- Menu introduction
We would like you to try our ‘onigiri’ (rice balls) when they are cold.
All rice tastes good when freshly cooked, but you can really appreciate the difference in taste when it cools down.
It is just like Japanese ‘sake’: tasting it at room temperature enables you to discern the unique flavor of each ‘sake’.
Ono rice is well-known for its chewy texture and sweet flavor.
You can enjoy its original delicious taste even when cold.
We are confident in the taste of our ‘onigiri’ even if you eat them cold.
Rice paddies preserve the culture of spring water.
Over 70% of houses in Ono use underground water taken from wells.
Ono is well-known for its rich spring water culture.
It is the rice paddies that preserve the blessings of our water.
Ono’s wells are full of groundwater in spring when the paddies fill up with water.
Without the rice paddies, the wells themselves would also dry up.
Farmers, rice paddies, and spring water all work together so that Ono can thrive.
In Ono, the water grows the rice and the rice preserves the water.
