    Yotsuya Senmaida Terraced Rice Fields

The rice fields constructed like stairs up the mountainside are called senmaida. Yotsuya Senmaida is a collection of beautiful rice fields that extend across Mt. Kurakake. Peaceful scenes like this were a common one in old Japan. Clear, fresh water gushes out from halfway up the mountain, and you can even see spawning forest green tree frogs, which only live in clean water. If you visit here, begin by greeting the scarecrow that stands near the entrance. Scarecrows that almost look like actual farmers are protecting these rice fields.
