For most of the period after World War II, Japan has fought a fierce battle against rice imports. For nearly forty years up to 1994, it did not permit them at all, except for importing a small amount of Thai rice for the making of Awamori -- a kind of liquor made in Okinawa. Rice is such an important part of Japanese meals that few Japanese would think of spending a single day without eating it.
