The local transport
After the decent I came out upon the river valley leading to Murumatsu where everybody was busy harvesting the local crop which is the world famous Koshihikari rice considered by many the best rice in Japan not only for eating but also for the production of Sake as well. This particular valley is said to have very delicious rice because of the quality of the water & climate. Pictured above is one of the local farmers on his rice harvester.
