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.
