Tsukibuse Terraced Rice Fields

Traditional rice terraces taking advantage of abundant water

The Tsukibuse area is abundant in water, with seven rivers running through it and natural springs bubbling up. There are many small rice fields, so-called hidden paddies, which have escaped zoning, so the natural landform remains intact while the abundant water supplies every single rice terrace. These rice paddies are cared for by locals, together with voluntary support from outside the island. Dedicated farmers are working hard to create a biotope and maintain the ecosystem, too.
