It is fabulous going Satoyama cycling along rice paddies now that water is filled.
That is how they pour water into the rice field.
There is a little waterway like that along with rice fields and you pour water from these waterways.
When you go Satoyama cycling, you can stop and observe things like that. I can do it on the way to go my grocery shopping, and it is a good break from work.
