You see here in Japan, rice processing has become so high-tech, even until the last part when you put the rice in your mouth you still dont touch it with your hands!

Cleaning and preparing rice. Kisar padi.
Most of all to remember is, Japanese do not, I repeat, Japanese do not import rice from other countries for their national consumption.
So whatever happens to the world economy, swinging up or down, the Japanese makes sure that rice is equivalent to 3 years supply for their nation.
This is what I called pure nationalism. The pride and love for one's country.
