  • It is a famous rice terrace in Ueda City. I just passed at the time of rice planting. There were a lot of rice fields on the slope, and I was intoxicated by the scenery which softened the mind. The original scenery of Japan was exactly there.

  • I happened to find it when I was driving in the direction of Ueda City. Rice terraces, which are selected as one of Japan's 100 best rice terraces, have terraced rice fields spread all over the slope with differences in elevation. Because it was a slope, the scenery of the Ueda Basin was wonderful, and it was a pleasant place with a sense of liberation. It was still early spring, so there was no rice plant, and it was a little lonely scenery, but it was a good place. La

  • It was one of my goals to go here to photograph the terraced fields on my trip to the area. I lucked out with the weather and the time of year. On Sep. 23, they were just harvesting the fields and there were scarecrows on display, but some were a bit blown over. The area is managed by an NPO and families pay to be members and harvest the rice. Entrance is free, but apparently you are asked to pay 500 yen for parking. We got there at 9:30 on a Saturday and there were already lots of cars so just kind of parked on the road and didn't know to pay. The car navigation also couldn't get us there, so had to use Google maps and intuition until we hit some small signs. There's no food, but a small rest house with a drink machine and rice for sale. The terraces are not on the huge scale of those you might see in National Geographic, but photographers will enjoy the landscape and view.
  • It may be difficult to get there without navigation. There are a small signboard in some places when going to the vicinity, and it reaches the narrow slope which is not popular and goes up single-mindedly. There is no doubt that it is beautiful in its own way, compared to the size of one thousand sheets of rice is small. It feels like a tea plantation in the mountains around Shizuoka.
