Higashikawa’s Season of Rice

As the white blanket of snow start to melt early this year, the season of rice-planting began a week earlier than average too.
The rice paddies are now ready to nurture the seedlings for the coming months and they are expected to be harvested in September.

The process of transplanting the seedlings to a new rice field is being shown in the photograph.
