Interesting sights

 This is some sort of industrial building in the middle of the rice paddies. Farming is not a popular occupation with the younger generations, so much of the farm land is being sold and turned into housing areas or places like this. Also people are eating less rice than in the past so less paddy land is needed. This also makes the price the farmers get for their rice lower, again decreasing the incentive to farm. Basically it is only the older generations who still farm and they sell off their property to support their retirement.
I noticed this strange little door below the window in the side of a large building containing some sort of machinery. I can not for the life of my come up with a reason for this little door. There is a large door, big enough for a car, around the corner to the right.
