Along the Chirihama Nagisa Driveway want to stretch your legs at this place. Sea wind blows through your hair, and the view is limited, but nice, even in autumn. The kiosk of course is clean, just as the restrooms are. I wonder what the mountainous...More

Not far from the town of Wajima, this is an enormously picturesque spot where the rice terraces meet the sea. We were fortunate to be there on a beautiful day in September during the rice harvest. Every view was another photo -- yellow rice fields,...More

It is a worth-visiting place. It teaches you how important rice was to ancient people who lived here. People utilized even a tiny space to make rice. It must have been very difficult to plant and harvest rice in this steep slopes land.

Much has been written on this famed attraction and that's the reason we stop by enrouting Noto Peninsula. Unfortunately the best time to visit, if you want to see green Pardi field would be in later part of the year, September. Notwithstanding, the place provides...More

Semmaida - meaning 1000 pieces of rice field, actually has 1004, is located right beside the seashore, giving a spectacular view and tranquil environment. As its beside the seashore, can get very windy.

At the beginning I thought these terraced rice fields are so common in Asia so I almost wanted to skip it. But when I am here how they have been creating the contours and viewing spots I am sure these worth all the acclaims. It...More
