A series of 1,340 terraced rice fields located on 736 meter tall Mt. Shirakura which has been selected as one of the 100 most beautiful terraced fields in the country. The countless small fields, rising in steps, creates an impressive and amazing sight. The scenery is also distinctly seasonal. When the planting is done, the fields turn green; when the ears shine golden, harvest time is near. Conservation activities are conducted here and a variety of events are held throughout the year, as well as rice-planting mini-classes.
