The soil of Yaehara region is known for the quality of its clay.

As clay soils have great fertilizing power, paddy rice (standing rice) can be grown with less fertilizer compared to sand rice fields. The organic fertilizer used is more effective and can be maintained longer.

The water from the Yaehara rice fields comes from the Tateshina Mountain and produces a delicious rice because its "silicon" content required for paddy rice is almost three times that of ordinary water. Fresh water containing a lot of minerals can prevent parasites.

Yaehara's climate also contributes to the production of a very high-quality rice. Sunshine time is high throughout the whole season. The starch absorbed during the day at high temperature enters the rice at night at low temperature and increases the moisture and viscosity of the rice.

Yaehara also experiences less rainfall than the neighbouring districts. It doesn't snow much in winter. As a result, parasites are difficult to remove and organic matter is retained in the soil.

Koshihikari rice from Yaehara, Nagano Prefecture is a quality rice for daily consumption. Consumed cold, it keeps all its gustatory properties.
