Rice in a bag kit, sold by Donki

My father in law received a kit to grow rice, complete with detailed instructions in this attractive bag.

Anyone who lives in Japan knows Donki, the abbreviation for Don Quixote, a chain of crowded shops full of the oddest merchandise, from electronics to clothes to food. Known for low prices, Donki is the inverse of a posh department store.

I was surprised to see that Donki (well, some of the stores) now sells grow-you-own-rice in a kit. It’s exciting to see an interest in growing your own food spreading to such a popular urban store. Have you seen other kits that encourage first-time city farmers?

      Hi Carol, Thank you for your interest. I am not a product distributor. Donki is a low cost variety store, and I doubt they have an online site. This simple idea should be easy to reproduce anywhere.
