Higashi Ushirobata Rice Terraces

Higashi Ushirobata Rice Terraces

Higashi Ushirobata Rice Terraces locate in Yamaguchi prefecture’s northern coast. The rice terraces face the ocean, and the two come together to create a beautiful view. When the fields are flooded with water, they act as a mirror and reflect their surroundings and the sky. To get the best view with this effect, visiting at sunset is recommended, as the colorful skies and the setting sun reflects onto the rice fields. Squid fishing in the nearby ocean is a thriving local business. During fishing season, the lights on the fishing boats are on after dark generating an unexpected but wonderful view.
