1000: Hida paddy fields

The famous preserved village of Shirakawagô has its extended-family houses surrounded by paddy fields, showing that rice can be grown even in the high valleys of the Japan Alps. The Hida name is the ancient kuni name of this area; it's now part of Gifu.

Photo note: I hesitated about this puzzle. It's a good close up view of paddy fields, but even given today's fashion for highly saturated photographs, I find the colours exaggerated. It is a fun puzzle to do, though, because of the reflection symmetry.
