Healthy and Tasty Rice Dishes for the Sakura Season

Rice is a huge part of our everyday diet, and different types of rice have different health benefits. In spring, eating more rice and congee is good for the spleen and stomach as it helps to invigorate us and replenish our energy. If you find rice too bland, then adding some colourful and tasty Japanese seasoning mix and toppings, or trying this delicious sakura congee, can make eating rice a lot more fun.
