In this season, rice paddies are filled with green rice. Where I grew up was surrounded by green rice paddy when I was a small kid. Now most rice paddies are gone and there are many small houses. Japanese eat rice less and less each year and farmers are getting older. I am afraid that in the near future the rice paddy will be rare. So this will be a nostalgic scene for Japanese in the future.
I took this photo from a window of the commuting train.
