Along the road

 This is the entrance to a traditional style Japanese home.
Just down the road, the area is more built up with a couple of tall apartment buildings and a lot of modern homes but there is still a rice paddy in the middle of everything. The rice stalks have just been transplanted from greenhouses where the seeds are grown into 15 to 20 centimeter plants. These plants are replanted into flooded paddies. As the plants get taller, they will stop adding water to the paddies and by the time the rice is ready for harvest the paddies will be completely dry.
