To experience the peaceful and slower way of life at the countryside in Japan was really great. When you walk along some rice paddies during the summer time the air is filled with the sound of frogs croaking.
I visited there some local markets with amazing food and enjoyed many festivals with fireworks. This picture was taken in Yaita, Tochigi Prefecture during one of my many hiking tours in this area. I´ll be back :)
