Ooyama Senmaida

The tiered Ooyama Senmaida rice fields in Kamogawa are lit up during the winter. I caught the 5 o'clock chimes just as the sun set, the moon rose, and the fields were illuminated.
It had been a long day, and it feels like it's been autumn for 2 years now. Winter is coming.

  1. Hello! I love these photos :) I want to visit Ooyama Senmaida when I visit Japan later this year but I'm struggling to get the maps to recognise the name/site. Do you have a maps location for where is best to see the lights/lanterns over the area please? (We will be driving so have the flexibility of a car)

      It's only lit up toward the end of the year (after rice harvest in September)

    2. That's great, thanks! We will be there in November, already looking forward to it :)
