Autumn scenery in Asuka Village,Nara

Autumn scenery of Asuka village (25 minutes away from my house by car.)
Cosmoses are blooming beautifully.
And the rice plants have ripen fully in this season,
we can enjoy their golden colours.
And the landscape of Tanada (shelf rice paddies) fields is beautiful.


  1. Wonderful landscape, Kumiko! And the Cosmos flowers are nice too! We also have Cosmos herebut I think our is a taller variety. I am still not very well with my flu. I wish you a nice Sunday!

  2. @Traveling Hawk,
    Thank you,Traveling Hawk!
    I like Cosmos,too.It's lovely flower.
    Oh,do you have the flu? I hope you'll get well soon.
    Please take good care of yourself,Traveling Hawk.

  3. Thank you for posting this Kumiko-san. The colours are gorgeous. The fields of rice are beautiful . It's nice to know such places still exist in Japan. Do they grow cosmos commercially there ?

  4. @Walter,
    Thank you,Walter!
    Yes,these sceneries are dissapearing in Japan now,but it still exists in countryside.
    No.they are wildflower,not planted commercially,I think.
    They show us the beauty of nature :)
