Rice fields, 水田

Rice fields, near Uji
Kyoto summer 2010



Like anywhere in Asia, the landscape in the summer in Japan is green. After June rainy season, the rice fields have this photogenic light green color. In September / October, this changes to yellow (some Japanese would even say gold!) up to the harvest.
I took these pictures in the Southern part of Kyoto near Uji where the widest rice fields in this area can be seen.
And like often in Japan, this is about space optimization. Therefore, this major highway was built on the rice fields.
