The stairs ... soar up from sea into firmament



As for the Tanada (Rice Terraces), already finished the harvest.
There is covered with grass.

The strong backlight reflects the sea before my eyes.





Time of several hundred years.  Innumerable people.   Nature. . .
The various elements created this huge sculpture.

The sea breeze always sharpened this valley.




The farmers have lived in this the narrow and remote land.  

 While they are hugging this Tanada.
 While they are embraced to this blue sky...


Here is
Genkai-chō, Saga Prefecture.
