walking “Kinchaku da” while waiting for the sunset
Series of photographs while waiting for the sunset, to Kinchaku da, which is a place of the city of Hidaka, Japan. Kinchaku da is a name of the rice fields which are surrounded by the meander of Koma river and collectively form a shape of Japanese antique purse. Kinchaku-da can literally be translated like “purse-shaped rice fields” and has become popular because of its peculiar name.
I found very interesting costumes of the Scarecrows.
Kinchaku da have a beautiful scenery from season to season. The forest surrounding shows the most beautiful scenery in late September to early October with a vast amount of cluster amaryllis flowers.
