The whole family is rice-planting.

That day, we were rice-planting all day.

We suffered from many gnats.

This rice-planting is a school activity.

The school activity was started by my parents.

Rice that is produced from this farm will be used for “mochi-tsuki (pounding boiled rice into mochi) festival” in Hippo.

The forest keeper is cutting trees near my house.

I hear the sound of falling trees every day.

We have now more sun shine.
