I believe most of us have seen paddy field before. But, have you ever get close to it. In Sekinchan, you can drive right beside the paddy fields. There are roads connecting the town with the small village located in the center of the paddy fields. Along the way, you will find water path (aqueduct), little bridge, birds, bird house, farmers and their giant machine. This is the main attraction in Sekinchan.

The paddy field is the most beautiful before it is harvested. All you see is an endless sea of greens.

Sekinchan was a fishing village in the 1920s, but is now more widely recognised as a famous paddy field

In June and December, the plots of land will turn golden yellow. This also makes for amazing photo opportunities.
