Terraced Rice Fields of Ogi

The scenic landscape of Ogi stretches out from the foot of Mt. Hiei to Lake Biwa. Tours are available for you to dine or make rice cakes at a farmhouse amid the area’s terraced rice fields.
It’s a heart-soothing experience to look out upon that beautiful farmland fashioned from the terraced paddies climbing stair-like up the slopes of the mountains and hills. Among them, the horseshoe-shaped terraced rice fields are famed as a precious piece of Japan’s landscape.
