Shiroyone Semmaida, Wajima
(3.8/5 based on 320+ reviews on the web)
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. A visit to Shiroyone Semmaida represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Wajima vacation builder to plot your vacation.

  • Is unfortunately in the winter during the day and weather was not good, is the spectacular terraces with stunning views of the Japan Sea. Just moved but cold, look a little bit from the parking lot, but the climate is good and nice

  • Terraced paddy fields on the coast is one very small, even counting seems to be 1004 photos. Cabin attendant said the night it's lit until 9 a.m., but nothing is the recommended daytime after dark the whole look. It would nice season to see the lush green rice. Knows the appearance of old and touristy, is disappointing and he has told me is happy to see. As had been developed too far down the road, but the view from the top was good.

  • Was made to go to watch at work. It is small in size. Even from the time of harvesting before the rice-planting season lonely figure however. Certifies the system seem to have misunderstood something on its own, but begin utilizing the regional FAO (United Nations food and Agriculture Organization), world agricultural heritage and farming and fishing, and UNESCO (United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization) World Heritage site is quite another thing. Further above designated as world agricultural heritage is only pointing to the "Noto Satoyama-no-Sato" is this region's agricultural fishery General alone, separately from the terrace itself is a world heritage site and what not. If (Agency for Cultural Affairs with the world heritage site which also differ from it) because (World agricultural heritage is part of the will is), has taken this up agriculture, forestry and Fisheries Ministry's WEBSITE and WEBSITE of the municipality can be seen as ' never told lies. "Therefore would be disappointed without permission, go to I see World Heritage sites in self ongovernment's please. Have you heard the mysterious world heritage site to begin with illumination at night? ^^;
