Shiroyone Semmaida, Wajima

Admire the relationship between manmade designs and nature during a visit to Shiroyone Semmaida, a set of terraced rice fields by the sea. Set on steep slopes, the paddies step down towards the ocean and number over 1,000. Take a stroll though the paddies to catch the contrast between the bright blue of the ocean and the green of the fields from different perspectives. The steep incline of the paddies means you'll find plenty of vantage points from which to admire the finely cultivated land and its untamable backdrop.

  • Along the Chirihama Nagisa Driveway want to stretch your legs at this place. Sea wind blows through your hair, and the view is limited, but nice, even in autumn. The kiosk of course is clean, just as ...  more »

  • Winter glitter for ribbing the illuminations that I went. The first pink, turned into a yellow and then a fantastic and beautiful. Firm for coastal wind snow coming down heavily and it was quite cold so cold.

  • Disney rice paddy fields. I dont think the thousands of fairy light lanters and tube lights across acres of the field is useful myself. It destroys nature. A little bizarre. You can hike the fields and be amazed by the many planted lights... pity. It's been made into a Cheddar Gorge. Ice cream is nice at the top thou. Bit too commercial for my liking.
  • When my wife and I came here in July 2016, I had very high expectations as I had never seen terraced rice fields facing the sea. It was an utter surprise to me that we could actually parked our rental car at the car park and then we would have an overview of the rice terraces within seconds. It was late to go in July, as the paddy had already grown and the scenic spot was just like another green hill by the sea!
  • Magnificent view. Combo of mountains, sea, and sunset. Last stop in my Summer vacation road trip.
  • Amazing place to visit. Make sure to go along the rice field path down and up in a loop. Very special place.
  • A lovely crowd pleaser tourist attraction on the northern coast of the Noto peninsula. During winter lightup, thousands upon thousands of LED lights that gradually change colour every few minutes make up the borders of terraced rice paddies covered in a clean, white blanket of snow. Truly a winter Wonderland.
