I took this picture of rice growing in a field behind some houses when I was in Kurume last October. It was the first time I’d seen rice plants up close.
I like rice, but after living here for 7 months and eating it almost every day, sometimes twice a day, I’m starting to get sick of the sight of it.
I’m sure there are people here that eat it for their breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Probably inbetween meals too, if they like to have an Onigiri in the afternoon.
Lucky we brought a few kilos of pasta with us.
