Autumn rice terraces
The green of stairs called "Tanada" (rice terraces) is a particularly bright color.
As Tanada is hard to cultivate very much, it is valuable.
Rice made with water from almost pure spring is delicious.
Because there were not resources at all in the Far East, they reclamationed mountains during several hundred years.
A farmer repairing the stone wall appears.
Somewhere is broken certainly every year.
However, because here is a depopulation zone, Tanada will become extinct and come back to the mountain again sometime.
It is fate of the samsara of the Nature.
Please look at other photos of Tanada, click here.
