It is a worth-visiting place. It teaches you how important rice was to ancient people who lived here. People utilized even a tiny space to make rice. It must have been very difficult to plant and harvest rice in this steep slopes land.

What an incredible place. It's amazing where rice can be grown!! We did have rain and there was little shelter but would encourage people to go there anyway.
