【General Category Best Award】
Photographer: Mr. Naoki Asano
Shooting Place: Asahi-machi, Nishimurayama-gun, Yamagata Pref.
Thank you very much for choosing my work. This is one of the rice terraces of Kunugidaira in Asahi-machi, Yamagata Prefecture. I took the picture of the early summer clouds that were reflected off of the rice fields submerged in water. There are many areas where the rice terraces are short of manpower, and it is not always possible to see this magnificent and graceful scenery. I want to leave this scenery for future generations. I hope to continue to communicate the charm of Satoyama.
