The 375 rice paddies terraced on the slope is a breathtaking scenery any season, and attracts photographers from all over the nation. As the closest terraced rice paddies from Tokyo, “Tanada” members come from cities to experience rice farming. They come in spring for rice planting, summer for weeding, and fall for harvesting. This way, Oyama Terraced Rice Paddies satisfy both needs, for locals who needed workers to farm rice and to preserve terraced paddies, and for city people who had fallen in love with the place and wanted to experience rice growing. The rice paddies are also the only ones in Japan who depend 100 percent on rain water for growing rice. Do not forget your camera, but just come anytime, as they are beautiful any time of the year.
