Rice: Rinse well, soak grains for at least 20 minutes prior to cooking. Once finished cooking, immediately uncover and fluff the rice by running a rice spatula through several passes.

Simmered Chicken and Daikon: Combine water, tsuyu, soy sauce, sake, mirin, and ginger in a pot and bring to a simmer, then reduce heat. Add daikon and chicken and allow it to simmer until daikon becomes soft and tender. With lid removed, let the sauce/liquid reduce to about half the starting amount. Garnish with sesame seeds and green onions and serve with rice.
