What to Expect

You can enjoy tasting the delicious and sweet pears that the farmers have carefully grown. But I want you to experience not only the tasting of delicious pears but also the beauty of the countryside of Japan. The beautiful scenery along route 175, from a bus window between the pear farm and JR Akashi station is reminiscent of the scenery of old Japan. The paddy field scenery is changing every day. The green sprouts of rice in the beginning of summer become golden ears of rice hanging down in the fall. We feel the change of seasons by looking the paddy fields. Around both equinoxes (Spring and Autumn), we can see amaryllis blooms. As a tour guide, I hope to have the chance to show you this aspect of my home town. I am waiting with some white herons who live with us among the paddy fields, and hope to see you soon.
