On-line report of rice growing

Rice is the most important food for Japanese people. You may understand how deeply rice is rooted in the life of the Japanese when you are told that the country has been called since old times "The Land of Golden Ears of Rice." Until Edo era, rice was used to pay tax, called, or yearly tribute. Luckily we have many rice paddies around my house. I will report using a digital camera in one hand how people grow rice.
