Teresa and friends harvest rice.

Rice Cutting

Every year, first years in Seiritsu get to have an amazing opportunity to get back to nature and understand a small part of the difficulty farmers experience. We went to Saitama to cut some of the rice we planted, a process we call inekari or 稲刈り.

Like always, it was a marvelous experience. You have a chance to bond with friends outside the classroom, scream in delight as your shoes get stuck in mud, and harvest rice for the school festival; we use the rice to make mochi!

The pictures below tells the story better than I can.
