Terraced rice paddies near the Abukuma river - Miyagi

In Japan terraced rice paddies are not too easy to find but they do exist. Knowing where to go is important to saving time and enjoying the view they can give especially on a clear day.
The photos were taken near Marumori in Miyagi prefecture not far from the Fukushima border and quite close to the Abukuma river. You can get near there by train and a good long walk or by car.

A lot of effort goes into the decorations and some people spend a good part of the year making them. The Sendai Tanabata festival is a three day festival which started on the 6th of August this year.

More Hiroshima photos

The trams in Hiroshima are a good way to get around the city and to get to Miyajima island.

The A-dome can be seen from many angles.
