亀ノ尾 Kame-no-o

Kame-no-o is a rice varietal for sake making and also edible. This is a roots of Sasanishiki and Koshihikari which are top quality edible rice today. A farner Kameji Abe found three pieces of rice ears which were ripened while the other indeginous variety "Sobe-wase" were all damaged by cold weather in 1893. He spent several years to multiply them and to make a further selection. Then he shared Kame-no-o to his neighbours and it became popular in northen part of Japan for several decades. Thereafter many improved varieties were born and Kame-no-o itself had totally disappered in 1970's. But it was revived in 1980's. Since this revival, Kame-no-o is getting more recognition again as a rare sake rice.
