San-nouji Terraced Rice Fields – Shimane – 山王寺の棚田

The terraced rice fields of San-nouji, are the pride and joy of Shimane residents and are considered some of Japan’s best. With about 200 rice paddies stretched out over a hillside landscape 300 meters above sea level, San-nouji terraced rice fields are also a place for people to experience farming activities such as planting and harvesting rice thanks to a local initiative in the form of a “Tanbo No Gakko” or agriculture school.
