Rice Harvest

Between work and two typhoons in the past week, it has been a bit difficult to get in some quality ride time.  I did manage to get out this past weekend and take a ride to Sakurai, just south of Nara city.  On my way there almost every field was busy with local farmers quickly harvesting their rice crops before the arrival of the typhoon.
