A Koku of Rice

One thought on “A Koku of Rice”

  1. It depends on the type of rice and how often one eats rice to determine whether a koku is enough for a year or not. In our house, one adult would consume around 240-250 lbs of Sona Masoori rice per year. If it were long grain, it would probably be 1/2 to 3/4 of that amount, since it is much more filling.

    I think you need to take into consideration the type of rice grown in Japan, to determine whether they are more or less. Also consider that for many Asian cultures, breakfast, lunch, and dinner were full meals. So they may have eaten it 3 times a day.
