Rice Terraces Harvesting Festival

Under the blue autumn sky, we visited the rice terraces with our guests from France and Australia. 

The village was harvesting their golden rice yesterday!!

Our guests participated in rice harvesting with the local for a short time. 

We had 'Bento' style lunch full of seasonal ingredients with the Miso soup we made.

In the afternoon, we cycled along the coast of Lake Biwa and enjoyed looking at the crystal blue lake and vermillion Torii gate.
