About Us

In the Japanese restaurant industry (especially in sushi restaurants) most people call sushi rice “shari”. Originally, the word shari referred to tiny pieces of sacred bones of the Buddha. Late in the 5th century, some shari (bone) pieces were brought into Japan from India and enshrined in several Buddhist temples. The Japanese people thought the small pieces of bone looked similar to grains of rice and so they began calling rice shari.
