Shiroyone Senmaida (A Thousand Rice Paddies in Shiroyone)白米千枚田
This nationally famous Shiroyone Town, Wajima City, Ishikawa Prefecture is a scenic spot where as many as 1,004 terraced rice paddies spread along the narrow steep slope between the national highway and the Sea of Japan., The layers of small rice fields continue to the coast, and the contrast of the green and blue is spectacular. The rice terraces, representative of the world agricultural heritage “Noto no Satoyama Satoumi,” are visited by many tourists. Because machines are unable to enter the fields, the rice is produced manually to the present day. There is a system where individuals can own their own rice paddy. In the winter, an illumination event, “Azeno Kirameki,” is held.
