Is there any restriction for bringing rice from Singapore into Japan? I like to bring some for a friend. Thank you.

I'm sure you can, coz I've brought about anything to Japan. My boyfriend works in Japan, and I've brought in things from mangosteens to glutinous rice dumplings. But remember, ONLY REASONABLE AMOUNTS FOR PERSONAL USE.

Customs have strict regulations against bringing in food items especially fresh foods and livestock, but for dry items, they usually do not care unless the amount is excessive.

For rice, I'd say a kilogram or two should be very safe. Please don't try to bring a 5 or 10kg sack of rice! You are wasting your own luggage allowance, and Japanese rice is so good anyway!

I actually intend to bring 10 kg pack, or may 2 x 5 kg pack. i hope it is not a problem with custom. One of my friends requested for it. luggage allowance is not an issue as i have 4 person travelling, so should have sifficient baggage allowance.
