The Rice Bowl – at the Center of Enjoyment

In Japan, nothing is more important on the table than the rice bowl filled with delicious rice. It can be sushi rice (short-grain rice), mochi rice (medium-grain rice), or any other popular variety of rice. But rice is a must. Perhaps that's why the typical dining bowl is called a rice bowl, even though it is used for many other dishes as well, including soups, vegetables, fish, and meat dishes.
