Annotation:This book is replete with color photographs accompanied by both Japanese and English text. Drawing attention to the abundance of water flow in Japan, Tomiyama remarks on how forestry and agricultural practices over millenia have positively marked the landscape. This photographic journey through Japan’s forests and rice fields also includes a systematic evaluation of Japanese remodeling of the archipelago, irrigation patterns, tree-planting practices, soil preservation, and rice cultivation. The human impact on the Japanese environment is portrayed very favorably.
