Inagura Rice Terraces Reviews
上田市にある有名な棚田です。ちょうど田植えの時期に通りました。斜面にたくさんの田んぼがあって、心和む景色に酔いしれました。まさに日本の原風景がそこにありました。 more »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.
上田市方面を車で走っていたらたまたま見つけました。日本の棚田百選に選ばれている棚田で標高差のある斜面一面に棚田が広がっています。斜面ということで上田盆地の風景も素晴らしく、解放感のある気持ちのいい場所でした。 まだ春先だったので稲も植わってなく少しさみしい風景ではありましたが、いい場所でしたよ。ら more »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.
