Higashidani Terraced Rice Fields

In the Tateyama Higashidani district there is an area among the mountains where underground spring water flows into terraced rice fields.
The wind that blows down from the high mountains into the valley creates a large difference in temperature between night and day. This helps the rice grown here in these terraced rice fields become sweeter than other rice.
This popular rice is sold under the certified brand name of "Tateyama Chikara Rice".
