Rice transplant

Behind of my clinic is rice paddy field.
The rice seedlings are done by automatic transplanter machine, which
introduced in 1970'~80' in Japan.

The rice harvesting machine also relief the manual works. But, the rice
production in Japan is inefficient, since the average land area of one farmer
own less than 1.0 hectare. After WWII, US occupation forces performed
the radical land reform in Japan. As a result, the large land owner had
disappeared and spitted the land into small piece one.

We pay the highest price for the Japanese rice.

Now it is a time to change.

 Today,  I harvest the Potatoes in my house.  The sunlight of this place
 is not so good. The sizes of potateos are so small due to growth failure.
   The variety name of this potato---- sorry, I forgot.  The center one is 
   Zippo lighter for comparison.
