Kurakawa Rice Terraces

The beautiful rice terraces that suddenly open up in the mountains tell the story of eternal history of the Kurakawa area.
It is said that "the rice was offered to the Ozu clan" in the rice fields where rich nature, clear air, and abundant fresh water springs out.
With that pride, they continue to protect the beautiful scenery of the rice terraces from season to season by sticking to labor-intensive agricultural work such as Inaki-boshi (drying in the sun) that has passed down from generation to generation and weeding without relying on pesticides.
