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.

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.
