Photo: red rice

From Asahi Shinbun: a photo of "red rice," a variety of rice that takes on a reddish-brown hue in late August and early September. This rice was planted as part of a local program to preserve old local varieties of rice. The folks in the picture were part of a crowd drawn on "red rice appreciation day," held to teach locals about the rice.
