Beautiful flowers in early May
May 2014 • Family
Nothing to see as we went in the day and the paddy fields are dry (no water yet) But the flowers / flowering trees are stunning during our visit on 1st of May

Legendary moon-reflecting terraced rice fields
Apr 2012
Nationally recognized traditional scenic spot, Obasute's terraced rice fields ('tanada') supposedly reflect the moon in the individual rice paddies. Easy access from Obasute Station on the JR Shinonoi Line between Matsumoto and Nagano cities. The platform serves as an observation deck, but it's a short walk down and through the fields. Historical Chorakuji Temple is half way down on the north side. Worth checking out for the recently redone thatched roofs, as well as the massive Uba-iwa boulder towering over it. Many haiku poets (Matsuo Bassho, Issa, etc.) and ukiyo-e artists (Hiroshige) came to see the moon reflecting in the fields. Nearby Obasute Mountain is named after the legend of the elderly being thrown away on the mountaintop. The fields are 10 minutes by car from Togura-Kamiyamada Onsen.
