Landscapes of Japan, 15, Flat land used for agriculture, rice fields and harvest, Yahaba.

Abstract

Flat land used for agriculture, rice fields and harvest, Yahaba. -- Flat land has always been important in Japan for agriculture simply because much of the country is too steep for cultivation. It is also the most fertile land. The lowest land, usually near a river or stream, is easiest to irrigate has often been used for growing rice. Higher terraces left by rejuvenation and renewed downcutting by a stream, tend to be sandy and drier and are used for grains, orchards and tea. -- This illustration shows an alluvial plain near the Kitakami River.
