Rice is the foundation of the Japanese cuisine. I like to see these large rice paddies everywhere in the country. The changes of the paddies during the seasons are really beautiful. Have a look at my picture gallery of Shirakawago and you will know what I mean. This picture was taken in the city Yaita (Tochigi Prefecture) on my way to Nikko.
