Bundles of rice are seen drying in the sunshine at "Owarabi no tanada" rice terrace in Yamanobe, Yamagata Prefecture, in this recent photo. This year, approximately 60 bundles were harvested in total, after which they were tied up with string and then placed on special poles to dry. The technique of drying rice in this way has been used for a long period of time, and the "Owarabi no tanada" terrace is recognized as one of the "Top 100 rice terraces in Japan." (Mainichi)
