The Evening Sun Lightens The Terraced Rice Field... To Make It Visionary

Like steps climbing up from the seashore, Hamanoura Terraced Rice Field is formed on the mountain slope. The scenery of the evening sun lightening the field is very visionary. During the end of April to the beginning of May, the rice fields draw water, and the sun comes to the center. Many people visit to see this scenery.
For the parking area gets crowded during the best season, so you should arrive earlier if you want to see the evening sun.
