Working in the fields

It has been awhile since I’ve written—sorry about that! So much has happened since my last blog entry! Perhaps one of the best things I’ve gotten to do in the last few months was help one of my students plant rice. Before I came to Japan, I had only seen rice fields once in my life, when I was in Hawaii, so I’ve been wanting to see how rice is grown first hand. Luckily for me, one of my students is a farmer with rice fields and he invited me to help plant. Although it was hard work, it was super fun! The hardest part was transporting the patties to another field because it involved some heavy lifting and I wore boots which kept getting stuck in the mud. After transporting the patties, I decided to roll up my pants and abandon the boots, opting to work barefoot, which was so much easier and fun. I planted rice by hand and by machine and I think I prefer to plant by machine because I don’t have to bend over. The day was hot and sunny so I got to wear a cute straw hat to protect me from the sun, but I still got a sunburn (my skin turned red and hurt) since I didn’t wear sunscreen. It was worth it though, because I got to spend a few hours planting and learning about where the rice I eat comes from. It’s hard work and I don’t think I could ever be a farmer, but I definitely appreciate the work farmers do and am so grateful to my student for the chance to help in the fields. I hope to have more opportunities to learn about Japan and its culture first hand from those I teach.
