A family takes pictures with fully blooming canola blossoms in a field in the city of Asakura, Fukuoka Prefecture, on March 1, 2021. The about 600,000 canola plants will be at their super yellow best through early March, according to a fresh produce shop at the "Michi no Eki Harazuru" roadside local products market which manages the field. An annual festival related to the canola blossoms was canceled this year after a coronavirus state of emergency was issued in the prefecture.
