    Japan, 1951: Vegetable plots within an urban setting

    The dominant landscape in Japan is still rural. More than half of the arable land is given over to rice cultivation, and 90% of the laborers are farmers. But 84% of the land area is mountainous- which means that each acre of tillable land must support 3,400 persons. The comparable figure for China is 1,400 while for the U.S. it is only 270 persons. --This was the description to accompany this image as written by Arthur O. Rinden, the photographer. His description, which he referred to as a "script" was to accompany a slide show of the images for his family and others.

    Landscapes of Japan, 03, Incised valley and upland terrace, Tanohata.

    Incised valley and upland terrace, Tanohata. -- If stream erosion and lowering of a land surface exceeds the rate of uplift of that surface, topographic relief decreases. This reduces stream gradients and velocity and causes streams to begin shifting laterally creating floodplains and eventually broad, nearly flat surfaces. If uplift is subsequently renewed, relief and stream gradients to the sea increase, causing the streams to erode downward once again. This can produce stream valleys incised into remnant terraces of the old flat surface, as seen here. -- Similar topographic features are produced when flat, wave-eroded surfaces along a coastline are uplifted and then cut into by downcutting streams flowing to the new, lower shoreline.

    Rice fields, Mt. Iwate, west of Morioka. -- Here, competing uses for flat alluvial plains for agriculture and urban expansion are evident. Originally this was all agricultural, but now the growing suburbs of Morioka are encroaching on the land. The volcanic cone of Mt. Iwate rises above the plain.

    Weathered granodiorite, Shirasakatage. -- In mountainous terrain weathered rock material, a major component of soil, is rapidly carried away downslope. The result is soil that is thin, poor and rocky. The eroded material may be deposited along a river farther downstream producing a floodplain, or it may be carried all the way to the sea. Because most Japanese rivers and streams are short and fast moving, much of the material goes to the sea. Agriculture is difficult in the mountainous parts of Japan because of steep slopes and poor soils, and much of this land remains covered by forest.
