Katanoo Terraced Rice Fields
Rice cultivation in a rich, natural environment
In a mountainous area facing the sea, rice terraces in various sizes stretch out for 200,000 square meters. The large temperature gap between day and night at this height, the clear water streaming from the mountains, and the love of people in Katanoo make for delicious rice. Among other things, Katanoo boasts of its rich nature, once inhabited by the last wild Toki (crested ibis). People in Katanoo are continuously working on creating a biotope, and growing organic and reduced-agrochemical rice.
