神力大米的发现:丸尾重次郎于1877

In 1877, Jujiro Maruo, an innovative farmer from Nakajima in Hyogo prefecture, discovered the exceptional Shinriki rice. This rice, celebrated for its remarkable yield, not only became a staple but also earned recognition as an ideal sake brewing rice, boasting properties such as "easy koji making," "easy rice melting," and "very few components that give sake an unpleasant taste."

1877年,来自兵库县中岛的创新农民丸尾重次郎发现了独特的神力水稻。这种大米以其卓越的产量而闻名,不仅成为主食,而且成为了一种理想的清酒酿造大米,具有“容易制作曲”、“容易融化的大米”、“很少有让清酒产生难闻味道的成分”等特点。
