The Naoshima Rice-Growing Project is being carried out in the Tsumu'ura paddy fields located along the prefectural highway in the Tsumu'ura district of Naoshima. Most of the Tsumu'ura paddy fields have been abandoned for some years, but since the project started in 2006, the pastoral landscape of planted fields has gradually been restored to its previous condition.
The new rice paddies are now ready for visitors. Please come and see the project site!
