Rice was the most common food source in Rokugan. They were measured in bushels, and approximately five bushels were considered enough to feed a man for a year. The Rokugani economic system was based on this principle, one koku coin being worth five bushels of rice.
Rice cultivation was labor-intensive and remained a task that could not be accomplished easily. As a result, families pooled their labor in order to meet the demands of the samurai caste. Most families shared their water resources and irrigation facilities, which required that water run downhill.
