Which countries produce sushi rice?

There are several countries in the world that produce rice for sushi. Of course, at the top of the list is Japan but China, Korea and the United States do also produce sushi rice.

There is quite a big difference between the varieties of rice that are produced in the different countries. The rice grain itself may vary in size depending on which country has grown the rice. Of course you have to keep that in mind it will have an effect on cooking the rice.

I have most experience using sushi rice which is either produced in Japan or in the USA.

This is due to the fact that these are the varieties of rice that have available in the stores I shop in Copenhagen. I have equally good experiences with sushi grown in Japan and the United States.

There are several different countries that produce seaweed for sushi.
Growing seaweed on the seabed is done with the same care and dedication as organic strawberries are produced in Europe.

The countries that produce seaweed for sushi are China, Korea and Japan. I have tasted different types of seaweed for sushi from the 3 different countries and there is a great difference in appearance, consistency and taste. Some types of seaweed taste a lot of sea but others are more neutral in taste.

Personally, I am mostly for seaweed types that do not taste too much of sea and which are crisp in consistency.
