Though the Japanese attach great importance to autumn colours in Japan, notably the leaves of the trees transforming the forests into vast firework displays, they also like to see the rice fields, which, at this time of year, take on the yellow hues synonymous with the coming harvest. Almost everywhere, you can see intensive activity in the fields where the rice is about to be harvested in.
