古代米・縄文水田 Ancient Rice Strains・Jomon Rice Paddies

Pesticide-free ancient rice strains grown in Jomon Rice Paddies

Jomon Rice Paddies is a project of re-creating paddies of the Jomon Period (12,000-400 BC) to grow pesticide-free ancient rice strains including black rice, red rice and green rice as well as aromatic rice.
The ancient strains grow higher than their modern-day cousins.
During the harvest season, the seas of reddish or dark grown ears undulate as they are blown by the wind -- the same picturesque scenes that ancient ancestors too must have seen.
