Farming Nozawa Onsen Japan
The locals are getting busy around the village preparing the fields for farming over the green season. Next to tourism, farming is probably the biggest industry in Nozawa Onsen. In Summer every little plot of dirt is farmed in some way. Rice is the biggest crop and it is delicious, you have probably eaten it in one of the restaurants or drunk it in the local Sake.
However nearly anything grows in the nutrient rich soil here and we have an abundance of flowing water. So we have a great variety of fresh produce to enjoy. For all those at home doing your own little bit of hobby farming hope it is going well.
Cold day here today, currently sitting on 0 degrees in the village and minus up top with what appears to be some snow falling!
