Sprouts of rice have just been planted on the paddy field in the middle part of Izu Peninsula.
From now on, the paddy field all over Japan will be covered with sprouts of rice from south to north gradually and we can enjoy watching them grow towards summer to autumn. I like watching rice grow out of the window when I am on Shinkansen. Rice is very strong plant that it can stand in the watery paddy field, which prevents weed from growing around rice.
