Making rice of HARUYA
Japan’s rice-making is more than just taking a large amount of food. In HARUYA, we are starting to make rice from seeds in own rice fields. We can have the morning porridge at [HARUYA Umekoji], 4 different tastes of 100 years architecture in Kyoto.
Touch the Earth
Treat humans as humans. There have been no slaves for more than a thousand years. Japanese prefer to serve themselves before serving others. Committed, polite, respectful work with words and attitudes. Not only human beings, but even inorganic matter, treating as if they have life. Feel holy spirit even in one grain of rice.
Ikichi, the father of TOYOTA’s founder, Sakichi Toyoda, was a carpenter. No matter how busy he did not throw away his ancestral agriculture, he got up early in the morning and performed the daily routine of farming before the carpenter’s work. In addition, Shoin Yoshida describes the family tradition of his birthplace, “We have a beauty that doing agriculture by ourself” as what his brothers should take over.
In Japanese rice farming, we can see the commitment to rituals and quality that goes beyond simply taking a large amount of food. In HARUYA, we are starting to make rice from seeds in own rice fields.
